HC Deb 28 June 1956 vol 555 cc680-1
22. Mr. Speir

asked the Minister of Education whether, with a view to assisting in the anti-litter campaign, he will ask local education authorities to ensure that adequate instruction is given in all schools on this subject.

Sir D. Eccles

Local education authorities and schools are very conscious of the importance of this matter, and I am glad to have this opportunity of emphasising it.

Mr. Speir

Does not the Minister think that there is rather too much official indifference to this very serious national problem? Will he try to use his influence to see that some education is now given on this matter?

Sir D. Eccles

I believe that the schools are doing quite a good job on the anti-litter campaign.
