§ 34. Mr. C. WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Education how many and what percentage of children who did not win scholarships remained in State-aided schools after the age of 14 years in 1926, 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930, respectively?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
I am afraid that I am not able to give the precise figures for which the hon. Member asks; but, if he will look at tables 7 and 8 in the reports of the Board for the years 1926–29, he will, I think, find substantially the information which he requires. Corresponding figures for 1930 will be available in the Board's report for that year, which will be published very shortly.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Is not the right hon. Gentleman in a position to give the House, as nearly as he can, an estimate of the figures?
