§ 32. Mr. Jim Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will issue a circular to local education authorities emphasising the need to ensure the safety of children, particularly those attending primary schools, on their way to and from school.
§ Dr. Boyson
No. The recently revised booklet "Safety at School: General Advice", number 6 in the DES safety series, includes a chapter on road safety. Much of the advice given is relevant to the safety of children on journeys to and from school. A copy of the booklet was sent to every local education authority.
