§ Commander Pursey
asked the Minister of Education the amount of the grants made by his department to the British Legion Home, Elsworthy Road, Hampstead, for maladjusted children; the number of children so aided; whether they are receiving full-time education; and why they are not being educated by their respective local education authorities.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
Expenditure incurred by local education authorities in maintaining children at this home is eligible for grant from my Department, but I do not make any direct grants to it. The seven children in the home, for six of whom local education authorities are financially responsible, attend a county school maintained by the London County Council. The children have been placed in a boarding home because they need special educational treatment which they could not get if they remained in their own homes.
