§ 4. Mr. David James
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what instruction is given in schools to preserve rural beauties and to prevent the proliferation of litter.
§ Mr. Chataway
On litter, in particular, I was glad to see the recent article inThe Times showing that there are now nearly 2,000 Keep Britain Tidy School Committees. Many schools provide also courses in rural studies. It is one of the responsibilities of all schools to help the pupils acquire respect for social amenities.
