HC Deb 15 February 1956 vol 548 c255W
2. Mr. John Hall

asked the Minister of Defence how it is decided that an officer or other rank serving at home may be subject to frequent postings and entitled to claim the education allowances for each child between the ages of 11 and 18 years.

Sir W. Monckton

A Service parent in the United Kingdom is eligible to claim an education grant for each child who qualifies for it, if the appropriate Service authority certifies that the parent is unlikely to remain in his present place of duty for more than four years.
