HC Deb 11 April 1940 vol 359 cc694-5
39. Mr. E. Smith

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has considered a resolution from the city of Stoke-on-Trent Education Committee, in which they direct attention to the facts brought to light by the evacuation scheme of school-children, and suggesting the provision of clothing and footwear for children who are unable to be suitably provided through the economic position of the parents; and whether it is intended to take any action?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education (Mr. Kenneth Lindsay)

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 4th April to a similar Question by the hon. Member for Stratford (Mr, Groves), a copy of which I am sending him.
