HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 cc3034-5W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he is taking any steps to urge upon the Commissioner for Special Areas the necessity of building new holiday camps for school children in distressed areas of South Wales to make up for the loss sustained by the closing down of some of the camps last year?

Mr. Lindsay

With the exception of the camp at Pembrey the Commissioner for the Special Areas has not closed any school camps in South Wales. The question of replacing this camp has been under discussion between the Commissioner and the Board. I understand that the future of these camps and other camps is now under consideration with particular reference to the Camps Bill.
