HC Deb 27 April 1936 vol 311 cc563-4W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has considered the extent to which the training of British juvenile dancers will be interfered with if they are prevented by the provisions of the Education Bill from obtaining full-time specialised training until they reach the age of 15; and whether he will consult experts in this matter before the final stages of this Measure in order to ensure that nothing is done to discourage British dancing or to give undue advantage to alien artistes?


My attention has been called to the question raised by my hon. Friend. It is not impossible, even within the proposed amendment of the law, to make suitable arrangements for such specialised training before the age of 15.
