HC Deb 21 June 1972 vol 839 cc454-5
13. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland with which bodies he has had discussions on the future of school camps.

Mr. Monro

My right hon. Friend has consulted the constituent bodies of the Scottish National Camps Association, which represent the great majority of organisations presently making use of the school camps.

Mr. Dalyell

In anticipation of a favourable reply on 30th June, can the discussion be widened into the provision of specialist facilities, perhaps for music, for secondary pupils?

Mr. Monro

There are no special facilities in existing camps, although education authorities run courses for sport, music and the arts at them. But this is a point we will have to look at in our discussions.
