§ 23. Mr. Markham
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education what proportion of university students are now drawn from State-aided secondary schools; and what are the specific figures for Oxford and Cambridge and for other universities respectively?
I regret that complete figures relating to the secondary school origin of students at the universities are not available; but a forthcoming publication of the University Grants Committee will contain the numbers of students who began their education in a public elementary school.
§ Mr. Annerley Somerville
Can the Parliamentary Secretary say what is the proportion of such students at the universities?
It includes full-time students at universities in Great Britain who have come from State-aided secondary schools.
