HC Deb 01 February 1940 vol 356 c1307W
Major Milner

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether, when evacuated children attending nursery schools attain the age of five years, the regulation requiring them to attend an elementary school will be waived for the time being in appropriate cases and the nursery school curriculum extended, in order to avoid a child having to return home, or change its situation and billet, leaving its friends and the teachers to whom it is attached?

Mr. Lindsay

Yes, Sir. In any case these children would not be removed from their nursery school party unless suitable billets had been found and the parents consulted.
