HC Deb 07 December 1939 vol 355 c842W
Mr. Harold Macmillan

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education what steps are being taken to provide medical services for children in evacuation areas?

Mr. Lindsay

In Circular 1479 of 29th September and Circular 1487 of 23rd November the Board emphasised the importance of maintaining the health of children left in the evacuation areas and of resuming the school medical service for these children, and they propose shortly to issue a comprehensive circular setting out in more detail the action which appears to be needed. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of this circular as soon as it is issued.
