HC Deb 13 February 2004 vol 418 c41W
Mr. Swayne

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to make changes to boarding school allowances; and if he will make a statement. [155183]

Mr. Caplin

Education allowances are provided to assist parents in ensuring continuity of education for their children, where it would otherwise be unacceptably disrupted by postings at home or abroad. There are no plans to change this approach.
