HC Deb 16 June 1939 vol 348 cc1684-5W
Mr. Ede

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he will state for each of the Part II education authorities of England and Wales how many pupils in secondary schools pay no fees; how many pay one-quarter fees or less; how many pay more than one-quarter but not more than half fees; how many pay more than half fees but less than three-quarter fees; and how many pay over three-quarter fees, distinguishing between those in this group who secure some remission and those who pay full fees?

Mr. Lindsay

As the answer contains a very large amount of statistical material I am sending the hon. Member the information direct. I regret that it is not possible to analyse the figures of pupils paying partial fees in the form asked for in the question.
