HC Deb 05 June 1919 vol 116 cc2220-1
107. Captain LOSEBY

asked the President of the Board of Education if he has recently made any alteration or contemplates in the near future making any alteration in the Regulations affecting secondary schools whereby it is secured that such schools in receipt of grants-in-aid, shall be compelled to admit free of charge 25 percent. of pupils from primary schools?


As I explained in my answer to the hon. and gallant Member on 28th May, 25 percent. is the normal requirement, which is subject to reduction in individual cases. I have not made and do not contemplate making any change in the Regulations which would render the schools less accessible to children from public elementary schools.
