HC Deb 30 July 1946 vol 426 cc129-30W
72. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the lack of educational facilities in Germany, he will consider sending out first those B.A.O.R. wives who have no children or any children under five years of age.

Mr. Lawson

A director of education has been appointed to provide the necessary educational facilities for the families in Germany of all the British Occupational Forces, and a scheme which should be ready to start well before Christmas has been worked out in consultation with the Ministry of Education. There is therefore no need for the suggestion made by the hon. Member.
