§ 56. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether be has in his possession any figures showing the reduction in number of students entering colleges and technical schools in Germany this year against last?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
My Noble Friend understands that the number of students who were admitted to matriculation in all German Universities and Technical High Schools in 1933 and 1934 was 43,000 and 15,000 respectively.
§ Mr. CHORLTON
Can my hon. Friend give any explanation of this enormous reduction which does not seem to be understood in this country? Is it because no work was found for the vast number of the "black-coated" produced in the past?
