§ 29. Mr. FENBY
asked the President of the Board of Education what is the number of university tutorial classes which have been provisionally recognised for grant this Session under the new regulations: how does this number compare with the number of classes working 2455 under the old regulations in 1923-24; and what number of preparatory tutorial classes have been provisionally recognised for grant?
§ Lord E. PERCY
Three hundred and seventy-five three-year tutorial classes and six advanced tutorial classes have already been recognised under the new Adult Education Regulations for the current session, whilst applications for recognition of 41 three-year classes and three advanced classes are under consideration. For the year 1923-24, 362 three-year, and five advanced, classes were recognised. Sixty-eight preparatory tutorial classes have already been recognised for the current session, and five applications are under consideration.
