asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware that prizes of National Savings certificates are to be awarded by Camberwell Council to school children who draw the best road safety posters; and whether, in view of the fact that such a scheme promotes savings and road consciousness in children, he will encourage other schools to follow the same course.

Yes. I understand that these prizes are awarded by the Camberwell Road Safety Committee for work done by school children out of school hours. I welcome any reasonable means of promoting savings and road safety, but the methods are best left to local initiative.
