HC Deb 07 March 1957 vol 566 cc91-2W
76. Mr. M. Stewart

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education whether he will explain the first sentence of paragraph 3 of Circular No. 20 of the Welsh Department, dated 26th February, 1957.

Sir E. Boyle

The meaning is clear from the Welsh version of the Circular. I regret that the English version was not quite accurately printed and should read: Primary schools and, possibly, junior forms of secondary schools, frequently do not mark the day with special services. In much the same way as they celebrate Christmas with carols and suitable plays, so, too, they celebrate St. David's Day with hymns and drama.
