HC Deb 26 February 1953 vol 511 c236W
88. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Education how many local education authorities are sending boys and girls to public schools under the terms of the Fleming Committee recommendations.

Miss Horsbrugh

My approval is required under the Scholarships and Other Benefits Regulations of the Education Act, 1944, to the general arrangements made by local education authorities for assisting pupils to attend independent schools, but I do not require local education authorities to keep me informed of the extent to which they give such assistance.
