§ 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?
§ Sir D. MACLEAN
Three hundred—not 200—State scholarships to universities were awarded in 1931–185 to men and 115 to women. Of the 300 scholars, 201, 1018 or 67 per cent., entered secondary schools from public elementary schools, and of these 201 scholars, 183, or 91 per cent., held free places.
