Representations to Cabinet Ministers
A deputation from the Richmond. Surrey, Central Council C.I'.E.A. was received by Brigadier-General Harvie Watt, the Member for the constituency. at the House of Commons on Thursday, October 14. The Member was given a memorandum on the White Paper which set out the views of his constituents. Brigadier-General Harvie Watt is Parliamentary Secretary to Mr. Chu' chill.
The Eltham C.P.E.A. waited on the late Sir Kingsley Wood, Chancellor of the Exchequer, shortly before his death. He was the Member for West Woolwich and in that capacity received the deputation. The nature of the representation turned suitably on the very great financia acortorry which the State indirectly effected by non-provision of Catholic school buildings.
Two new schools at Eltham had been erected to accommodate 575 children at Li Cost of £20,000 from Catholic resources, not from public funds. which had thus been saved the expenditure of that sum for the accommodation of those children. Sir Kingsley gave the deputation a friendly hearing.
