23. Miss CAZALET
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he has considered the resolution sent by the recent conference representing 33 local education authorities in and around Greater London to consider the question of the raising of the school-leaving age; and what action, if any, he proposes to take in the matter?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
My Noble Friend has seen the resolution in question. The Government propose to make a statement in the matter very shortly.
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
I understand that my Noble Friend will make a statement in another place to-morrow.
