Catholic Herald Reporter

PROBLEMS arising for Catholies out of the London Government Bill were raised in the House of Lords on Tuesday by the Earl of Iddesleigh.

He pointed out that the Bill says nothing about payment of transport costs for London children who have to cross borough boundaries to go to school.

The Bill makes provision for movement of pupils so that a child living in one borough can still attend the school of his parents' choice even if it is in another borough. This may involve parents in heavy fares which at present are paid for by the LCC.

Lord Iddlesleigh said he hoped the Government would give some guarantee that such payments would continue.

Catholics are also concerned that the multiplication of local authorities under the Bill will make it very difficult to plan Catholic school-building.
