HC Deb 31 May 1956 vol 553 c436
39. Sir F. Medlicott

asked the Minister of Education what steps are taken to encourage the planting of trees around the playing fields and other grounds of schools which come under his jurisdiction.

Sir D. Eccles

This matter is dealt with in two of the Ministry's building bulletins. I am sending my hon. Friend details.

Sir F. Medlicott

Will my right hon. Friend do all he can to encourage the growing of trees, not only for their own sake but also to relieve the austerity of some of the buildings with which this generation has been afflicted?

Sir D. Eccles
