HC Deb 08 December 1955 vol 547 c87W
67. Mr. H. A. Price

asked the Minister of Education if he is aware of the decision in the case of Watt v. Kesteven County Council and of the effect of that decision upon the application of Section 76 of the Education Act, 1944; and if he will make a statement.

Sir D. Eccles

I am aware of the decision to which the hon. Member refers. As it endorsed the advice given to local authorities in the Manual of Guidance issued by my Department in 1950, which I consider sound, I see no reason for a statement.
