§ 28. Colonel ENGLAND
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he still adheres to his estimate that the raising of the school-leaving age would only cost £2,500,000; and, if not, what is the latest estimate?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
The estimate of the cost of raising the school-leaving age will be printed with the Education (School Attendance) Bill which, it is hoped, will be in the hands of hon. Members tomorrow. I am not seeing any reason to alter the estimate to which the hon. and gallant Member refers.
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Will the right hon. Gentleman include the cost to the ratepayers as well as the cost to the taxpayers?
