HC Deb 15 December 1955 vol 547 c1378
30. Major Anstruther-Gray

asked the Minister of Education the contents of his most recent circular to local education authorities with regard to teachers rendering assistance in the operation of savings groups in schools.

Sir D. Eccles

In December, 1951, my predecessor drew the attention of local education authorities and teachers to a campaign which the National Savings Committee was conducting. Confidence was expressed that authorities and teachers would be ready and willing to take an active part in the campaign as they had always done in the past.

Major Anstruther-Gray

Am I right in thinking that most teachers are continuing to co-operate happily in this scheme?

Sir D. Eccles

So far as I know, they are. Certainly their service, which is voluntary, in the collection of savings has been of the greatest national value.
