HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 cc1055-6W
Major Beamish

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether the four occupying Powers have agreed on the general lines of the re-education of Germans in German schools and universities; by whom this re-education is being co-ordinated; and whether he will give an assurance that the re-education of Ger- mans in all four zones is proceeding, and will proceed, on similar lines.

Mr. Hynd

The co-ordination of education policy in Germany is vested in the Co-ordinating Committee of the four Occupying Powers, working through an Allied Education Committee, which consists of an official representative from each zone. The general principles governing the reopening of schools and universities are much the same in all zones, though the progress varies according to the availability of premises, books and teachers.
