HC Deb 26 July 1939 vol 230 c1610W
Duchess of ATHOLL

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland in how many primary schools there are advanced divisions organised which include practical instruction for both boys and girls?


The number of primary schools having advanced divisions organised to provide practical instruction for both boys and girls is, approximately, 1,400. Details as to the number of schools in which the various subjects of practical instruction were respectively taught in the year 1927–28 will be found in table VI of the Report of the Committee of Council on Education in Scotland for the year 1928–29, a copy of which I am sending to the Noble Lady.
