HC Deb 26 November 1941 vol 376 cc770-1W
Mr. John

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware of the resentment caused in Wales by the complaints made at a Deal meeting of school teachers of the reception evacuated children had had in certain districts of South Wales; and whether he will take steps to inquire into the allegations and to prevent returning teachers from insulting the people who have given them hospitality?

Mr. Ede

Such reports as I have seen do not suggest the need to take any grave view of the statements made by the teachers, some of which were sincerely complimentary to their hosts in Wales, even though others were not too happily expressed.
