HC Deb 11 February 1932 vol 261 cc1017-8
47. Mr. McENTEE

asked the President of the Board of Education the proportion of the 200 State scholarships awarded during 1931 made to men and women respectively; what percentage of the State scholars went to their secondary schools from public elementary schools; and the percentage of these who won free places?


Three hundred—not 200—State scholarships to universities were awarded in 1931–185 to men and 115 to women. Of the 300 scholars, 201, or 67 per cent., entered secondary schools from public elementary schools, and of these 201 scholars, 183, or 91 per cent., held free places.
