HC Deb 15 March 1932 vol 263 c167
18. Mrs. SHAW

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the cost per pupil of secondary education in Scotland; and the number of pupils who completed the full secondary course in 1929, 1930, and 1931?

The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Major Sir Archibald Sinclair)

On account of the intimate association existing in Scotland between primary and secondary education, it is not possible to state separately the cost of education of the latter type. The numbers of pupils who left recognised secondary departments of grant-aided schools after completing five or more years in such departments were, in 1928–29, 4,220; in 1929–30, 4,047; and in 1930–31, 4,056.
