HC Deb 25 January 1962 vol 652 c34W
61. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

asked the Minister of Education in what circumstances school children from Lepton and other West Riding villages were ordered off a school bus this month, miles from their homes.

Sir D. Eccles

I understand that the driver of the hired coach took this action because he thought one of the children had damaged the vehicle and would not own up. The local education authority tell me that they and the transport contractor are taking steps to prevent any further incidents of this kind.
