HC Deb 11 May 1950 vol 475 c88W
105. Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the average maintenance cost per head in approved schools and remand homes.

Mr. Ede

The average weekly cost per head of maintaining children in approved schools is estimated to be £5 12s. in 1950–51. I regret that I cannot give a comparable estimate for remand homes, as figures on which to base an estimate of the average population are not available.
