HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c614W
Sir P. Hurd

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether, under the scheme for the Canadian reception of British scholars, British schools can now arrange for the education of their transferred scholars in Canada and for the educational fees of the parents being paid in that country?

Mr. Shakespeare

The Government scheme does not apply to the evacuation of schools as a whole, and was never intended to do so. It applies only to individual children, whatever kind of school they may be attending. The point raised by my hon. Friend is already receiving separate consideration and I hope to make a further statement at an early date.
