HC Deb 22 November 1954 vol 533 c93W
95. Mr. Cooper-Key

asked the Minister of Education whether he will circularise local authorities recommending the omission, in ceremonies connected with schools, of the singing of songs of a party political nature.

Mr. Vosper

My right hon. Friend deplores the exploitation of such occasions for party political purposes, but he thinks that the matter should be left to the good sense of those directly concerned. It is very rare for this discretion to be abused as it was on a recent occasion.
