§ Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland by what means opportunities for, and conditions in, overseas service under the auspices of Voluntary Service Overseas and the Ministry of Overseas Development, respectively, are made known to senior pupils in Scottish schools.
§ Mr. Ross
I would refer the hon. Member generally to the Answer given on 20th July by my hon. Friend, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Overseas Development to my hon. Friends the Members for Ealing, North (Mr. Molloy), Carlisle (Mr. Ron Lewis) and Wolverhampton, North-East (Mrs. Renée Short). Besides making the opportunities for Voluntary Service known through the Head Teachers' Association of Scotland and the Association of Headmistresses of the United Kingdom, V.S.O. has two local committees who also provide information on voluntary service. Visits to Scottish schools are made by representatives of V.S.O. as frequently as possible.
