HC Deb 28 November 1979 vol 974 c650W
Dr. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, in view of the difficulties experienced by the parents of children attending denominational schools who find that the cost of travel is high on account of the distance to these schools, if he will make special provision for these children; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Macfarlane

There is provision within the Education Acts empowering local education authorities to assist parents by paying all or part of the reasonable home to school travelling expenses of their children, and authorities make use of these powers.
