HC Deb 08 December 1932 vol 272 c1806W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether, for the guidance of the education authorities, he can give any further details as to the nature of the districts in which the fee system adopted in the secondary schools of Bradford will-be regarded as appropriate?


If, as I assume, my hon. Friend has in mind the areas in which the award of 100 per cent, of special places would be regarded as appropriate, I would invite his attention to paragraphs 3 and 4 of Circular 1424, which provide the information, and I am sending him a copy.


asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education how much of the saving of £400,000 resulting from the adoption of the new secondary school proposals of the Government is expected to be effected in the County of Yorkshire?


As I intimated in an answer on 18th. October last to the hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Morgan Jones), the estimated saving of the order of £400,000 is not a close estimate but a rough forecast. Until the arrangements proposed by the several local education authorities in the County of Yorkshire have been received and considered, no reliable estimate of the ultimate savings in the county will be possible.
