HC Deb 28 January 1930 vol 234 c883W

asked the President of the Board of Education what will be the effect in the county of Devon of raising the school-leaving age to 15 years on the numbers of children to be provided for, increases in teaching staff, new buildings necessitated, with an approximate estimate of the increased cost to imperial and local funds, respectively?


I have not yet received the programme of the Devon local education authority, but I expect to receive it shortly, and I will then be glad to give the hon. Member the information for which he asks.
