HC Deb 05 August 1976 vol 916 cc1007-8W
Mr. Mallalieu

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether any directive or guidance has been sent by his Department to local education authorities that in the provision of free travel for school children they should revert to the limits provided for in the Education Act 1944.

Miss Margaret Jackson

No such directive or guidance has been issued. Authorities are free to exercise their discretionary powers in this respect.
