HC Deb 04 March 1980 vol 980 c165W
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.
