HC Deb 10 November 1966 vol 735 c323W
1. Mr. Peter Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps his Department are taking to overcome the problem of children from rural areas not enjoying after-school activities because of the long hours of travelling between home and school.

Mr. Denis Howell

Local education authorities have power to take such steps as they think necessary to deal with this problem, and I welcome this opportunity of drawing it to their attention.
