asked the Minister of Education to what extent he has been approached by local education authorities about bringing large groups of children to London for the Festival of Britain; what plans are being prepared, with a view to extra facilities being available for schoolchildren; and if he will give an estimate of the aggregate cost involved.

I have been approached by a number of local education authorities and other organisations about this matter. I propose to issue as soon as possible a circular to local education authorities about the arrangements that are being made, in consultation with the Festival authorities, to provide facilities for school children.
