§ 17. Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Minister of Education the respective proportion of the school population able to obtain grammar school places in each of the Welsh education authorities in the years 1920, 1940, and 1957, respectively.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
This information is not available in the precise form asked for. I am writing to the hon. Member.
§ Mr. Thomas
Will the Minister hurry up and get me the information? He will be able to correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that he will find that owing to the "bulge" now reaching secondary schools in Wales it is far harder for a child to get to the secondary grammer school now than it was six years ago.
