HC Deb 07 February 1968 vol 758 cc145-6W
Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the secretary of State for Defence how many children of service families, at present being educated abroad, will he returning to the United Kingdom within the next three years; in what parts of the country such families are likely to be stationed; and how many he expects will live in the administrative county of West Suffolk

Mr. Reynolds:

Reduction in overseas strengths will affect about 20,000 school children. Families are likely to be stationed in major garrison areas in the United Kingdom, but it is not yet possible to specify the probable increase in the number of school children in any area, including the administrative County of West Suffolk.
