§ 15. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many children between the ages of six and 14 years are not attending schools in Ceylon; and how many children are attending schools?
Mr. M. MacDONALD
At the end of 1933, which is the last date for which figures are available, there were 631,122 children between the ages of six and 14 at school in Ceylon. I am not in a position to say how many children between these ages were not attending school.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Is it not possible to ascertain exactly how many children are not yet attending school?
