HC Deb 01 July 1958 vol 590 c1060
25. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many independent schools are now registered in Scotland.

Mr. N. Macpherson

The number is 158.

Mr. Rankin

Can the Joint Under-Secretary say how many independent schools have still to be registered; and, when these independent schools are registered, what steps are taken regarding their supervision?

Mr. Macpherson

All known schools have applied for registration. The figures I have given are those provisionally registered; 107 of those have been inspected since provisional registration, and we are getting through the whole number as quickly as we can.
