§ Mr. Gledhill
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education what arrangements were made before 1st September, 1939, for the education of school children evacuated from the various centres?
§ Mr. Lindsay
The local education authorities of reception areas were responsible for making arrangements for the education of children evacuated to their areas. In May, 1939, the Board issued a circular, of which I am sending my hon.2160W Friend a copy, giving guidance to authorities on the measures to be taken.
