HC Deb 16 November 1950 vol 480 cc190-1W
116. Mr. E. Martin Smith

asked the Minister of Education if he will take steps to see that adequate grants for distinctive school clothing are provided by all education authorities.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am sending the hon. Member a copy of Addendum No. 1 to Circular 210 under which in July last I resumed payment of grant on local education authorities' provision of distinctive school clothing. I cannot in the present time of financial difficulty go beyond the terms of that circular.
