§ 42. Mr. Janner
asked the Minister of Education whether he will circularise local education authorities suggesting that teachers should be asked to point out to children the dangers of sheltering under trees in severe storms.
§ Mr. Janner
Is the Minister aware that there have been quite a number of casualties owing to the fact that children have, quite naturally, sought refuge when a storm has broken? To try to prevent this, will he not do something in the manner I have suggested, or in some other way?
§ Sir D. Eccles
These are shocking accidents but I think that the prominence given by the Press to accidents caused by lightning is probably the best way to bring the matter home to parents and school teachers. I do not think that I could do much by means of a circular.
