§ 54. Mr. DAGGAR
asked the President of the Board of Education which local authorities have raised the fees in secondary schools; and what authorities have reduced the number of scholarships since 1st October?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
Since 1st October one local education authority has raised the fee payable in one of its schools. Proposals to raise fees have also been received from three other local education authorities and are receiving consideration. My right hon. Friend has no evidence that the number of scholarships awarded by local education authorities has as yet been reduced.
