HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 c1264W
Mrs. Adamson

asked the President of the Board of Education the number of children on the registers of public elementary schools in England and Wales who are in attendance at school for five hours or more per day; and the number in attendance for less than five hours per day?

Mr. Butler

The returns received from local education authorities were not in a form which would enable the Board to give the information required, but I understand that normal school hours are now generally in operation.
