44. Rear-Admiral Morgan-Giles

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will issue guidance to county councils to permit the continuation of existing facilities in school buildings for Scout and Girl Guide troops.

Miss Margaret Jackson

Local education authorities are aware that my Department encourages the use of school facilities by the community and they already make their buildings available to a large number of organisations, including Scout and Guide troops.
