HC Deb 21 February 1939 vol 344 c194
54. Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the percentage for 1937 of school entrants found, as a result of school medical inspection, to require treatment?

Mr. Colville

I regret that the information desired is not available, as the form of return in use prior to the present school year shows only the total number of schoolchildren requiring treatment for a particular defect, without distinguishing the numbers in each age group. The form now in use will, however, provide this information in future.
