§ 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.
