HC Deb 04 April 1940 vol 359 c310
39. Mr. Sorensen

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he can now make a statement respecting present arrangements for the compulsory school attendance of children in evacuation areas; their average weekly hours of education; the approximate number and percentage of evacuable children who are not now evacuated but are receiving education; and the number and percentage of secondary school scholars who are now receiving education in secondary schools in their home area?

Mr. Lindsay

A statement of the present position in regard to the various matters to which the hon. Member refers cannot be made until returns for which the Board have asked have been received from the local education authorities concerned and collated. The desired information will be available later this month, and I will send it to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
