HC Deb 11 July 1907 vol 178 c48
MR. YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education if he can state the number of public elementary schools or school departments having an average attendance of less than fifty scholars, and the number having an average attendance of between fifty and sixty.

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. McKenna,) Monmouthshire, N.

I fear the labour involved in the compilation of these figures would be so great that I do not feel justified in undertaking it, especially at this time of the year when the ordinary work of preparing the annual statistical volume is exceptionally heavy.
