HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c89W
120. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Education why the school term in Oxfordshire primary and secondary schools is to extend over Easter; and whether he will ensure that in all cases Good Friday will count as a Holy Day and not as an occasional closure.

Mr. Tomlinson

The spring term for Oxfordshire schools has in fact been so arranged as to end on 20th March next year—three days before Good Friday.
