HC Deb 04 March 1908 vol 185 cc679-80
MR. HENRY (Shropshire, Wellington)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education, if he will give the number of voluntary schools built since 1890, and the average number of children attending these schools.


I have no collated statistics on this point prior to October, 1895. Since that date 588 voluntary schools with accommodation for 103,185 children have been placed on the list of public elementary schools. I regret that, owing to the labour involved, I am unable to state the average number of children in attendance in each of the schools.
