HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 cc89-90W
121. Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Education whether his attention has been drawn to a decision of a divisional education executive to take court proceedings against the parents of boys who absented themselves from school to attend a pre-service training camp; and whether he will advise education authorities to permit such absences.

Mr. Tomlinson

My attention has been drawn to this case. I cannot condone breaches of the law of school attendance.
