HC Deb 01 February 1945 vol 407 c1643W
Mr. Levy

asked the Minister of Education if will state the significance of the words in brackets, "determined by a direction of the Minister of Education," in the School Attendance Order Regulations, 1944 (S.R. & O., No. 1470).

Mr. Butler

Under Section 37 of the Education Act, 1944, a parent has the right of selecting the school to be named in the school attendance order. The school so selected must be named in the order unless the Minister otherwise directs, after receiving representations by the local education authority, that the school is unsuitable for the child or that his attendance at it would involve unreasonable expense to the authority.
