HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c165W
2. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Education approximately how many school children in parties organised by education authorities were enabled to visit continental countries last year; and what encouragement is being given to ensure similar visits this year.

Mr. Tomlinson

I do not collect statistics of the number of children taking part in school visits. Owing to the present need for strict economy, I am afraid that I cannot give any special encouragement to visits to continental countries by parties of school children this year.
