HC Deb 29 January 1934 vol 285 cc27-8

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education the estimated number of boys and girls that will leave school in Wales during the next five years, giving figures for each year separately?


As the answer contains a number of figures I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The estimated numbers of children who will leave the elementary schools in Wales for employment during the next five years are as follow:

Year ending 31st March—
1934 35,250
1935 37,770
1936 37,080
1937 33,640
1938 32,560

It is anticipated that the numbers of boys and girls will be approximately equal.
