asked the Minister of Education whether, in view of the fact that some local authorities operate agreements between the parents or guardians of children attending secondary schools after having reached the statutory school-leaving age by which provision is made for the payment by such parents or guardians of an agreed sum in the event of the pupil ceasing to attend such schools before the date fixed by such agreements without the consent of the authority concerned, he will consider issuing a circular with a view to achieving uniformity of practice in this matter throughout the country.
