§ 56. Mr. R. RICHARDSON
asked the President of the Board of Education how many children were in receipt of maintenance allowances in the year ending 31st March, 1921, in ordinary public elementary schools, in central schools, and in secondary schools, respectively?
§ Mr. FISHER
I have no materials which would enable mc to state the number of children in ordinary and central public elementary schools who in 1920–21 were in receipt of maintenance allowances granted by local education authorities. The number of pupils in secondary schools who, during the whole or part of that year, were in receipt of such allowances was, approximately, 57,000.
