§ Major KINDERSLEY
asked the President of the Board of Education the average cost per week of a scholar in the elementary schools, including costs of administration?
§ Lord E. PERCY
On the basis of the figures for the financial year 1923–24, the average weekly cost per public elementary school pupil is 4s. 4½d. for 52 weeks in the year. In this connection, I may refer the hon. and gallant Member to page 9 of the Memorandum on the Board's Estimates, 1925–26 [Cmd. 2386], a copy of which I am sending him.
