HC Deb 13 December 1939 vol 355 cc1219-20W
Mr. Denville

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he is satisfied that no atheistic and anti-Christian teaching takes place in undenominational schools?

Mr. Lindsay

I have no grounds for suspecting that any such teaching is given even surreptitiously in schools under the Board's jurisdiction, and I am satisfied that local education authorities and governing bodies would not permit it.
