HC Deb 04 February 1971 vol 810 c424W
71. Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will define the term, educational, as it is used by her Department in determining the eligibility of a body to be regarded as a charity.

Mrs. Thatcher

The question whether any particular institution is to be regarded for the purposes of the law of charity as established for the advancement of education is determined in accordance with principles laid down in decisions of the courts. It is not possible to summarise these principles in answer to a Question.
