123. Mr. Goronwy Roberts

asked the Minister of Education what is the policy of his Department with regard to making awards to school children who attain exceptionally high records of attendance at schools; and what instructions have been issued in the matter to local education authorities.

Mr. Tomlinson

None. I regard this as a matter entirely within the discretion of local education authorities.
