§ 15. Mr. MacColl
asked the Minister of Education how many children, during the last convenient year, have been reported by local education authorities under Section 5 of the Education Act, 1944, as incapable of receiving education at school.
§ Mr. Hardman
The number of children reported by local education authorities in 1950 under Section 57 of the Education Act, 1944, as incapable of receiving education at school, was 3,286.
§ Mr. MacColl
Can my hon. Friend say whether these figures bear any relation to the alternative facilities available for children under the health authorities, and whether these children can be kept in schools where nothing else can be done for them?
