41. Mr. Skinnard

asked the Minister of Education what is the number of pupils on the roll in each of the comprehensive secondary schools now open; and the estimated enrolment of any such school due to open in September, 1949.

Mr. Tomlinson

As the answer to the first part of the Question contains a number of figures, I will, with permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT. No such school is expected to open next September.

Mr. Skinnard

Can my right hon. Friend at any rate say what the average enrolment of the new schools to be opened this year will be?

Mr. Tomlinson

The hon. Member had better read my answer.
