HC Deb 25 March 1948 vol 448 cc3329-30
34. Mr. Manningham-Buller

asked the Minister of Education whether it is with his approval that the Cardiganshire Education Committee have barred members of the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, Air Training Corps and Junior Training Corps from applying for three bursaries offered to Cardiganshire youths for a month's course at the Outward Bound Secondary School, Aberdovey.

Mr. Hardman

These conditions are laid down by the school, not the authority, and the approval of my right hon. Friend is not required.

Mr. Manningham-Buller

Can the Minister say whether any grant is made by the Ministry of Education towards these three bursaries, and will the hon. Gentleman take all possible steps to stop this discrimination being continued?

Mr. Hardman

I do not acknowledge that there is any discrimination. As to the first part of the question, I think we should have notice of it.
