HC Deb 01 May 1935 vol 301 cc365-6

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the resolution of the National Free Church Assembly to the effect that any grants made to the non-provided schools to enable them to meet the special emergency caused by any raising of the school-leaving age should be understood to be exceptional; and whether he can state the attitude of the other Churches towards this particular proposal?

Major GEORGE DAVIES (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The attention of my hon. Friend has been called to the resolution referred to. With regard to the last part of the question, he is not in a position to add anything to the answer given the day before yesterday to the hon. Member for Leigh (Mr. Tinker) and to my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley (Mr. Joel).
