HC Deb 06 December 1928 vol 223 cc1378-9

asked the President of the Board of Education if he can state the number of scholars in Welsh county (secondary) schools who, during the last school year, took Welsh as a classical course instead of Latin or Greek, and the number who took Latin and/or Greek?

Duchess of ATH0LL

It will probably suffice for the hon. Baronet's purposes if I give the numbers of pupils who were presented in Welsh, Latin and Greek, respectively, for the examinations of the Central Welsh Board in 1928. Of the 127 schools examined, 103 presented 2,086 pupils in Welsh; 123 the first part of the question is in the presented 2,173 pupils in Latin; 14 presented 59 pupils in Greek.
