§ 23. Miss Bacon
asked the Minister of Education how many classes there were of over 60, over 50 and over 40 on the last available date
§ Miss Horsbrugh
I have no more recent figures than those which I circulated on 22nd October last, in the OFFICIAL REPORT. I can add only that of the 42 classes in secondary schools with over 50 pupils shown there, nine were reported to have classes with over 60 pupils; but these have been found, on investigation, to be assembled only for registration purposes and the pupils were, in fact, being taught in much smaller groups.
