25. Miss CAZALET

asked the President of the Board of Education the estimated number of elementary school children in London who go away annually for a holiday, whether assisted through the schools or through private organisations?


I am informed by the London local education authority that the annual number of public elementary school children who are assisted to obtain a holiday is approximately 48,000. In addition, some 14,000 children are sent away annually on school journeys to the country or seaside for periods of seven days or more.
