§ Mr. Tomlinson
I deplore the fact that many pupils leave grammar schools without completing the full course, and in particular that so many leave before reaching the age of 16. I do not think, however, that any useful purpose would be served by instituting an inquiry. In any case, as I pointed out in my answer on 10th May, the latest figures show an improvement, and this improvement will. I hope, be more than maintained as better facilities become available and the value of a continued education is better appreciated.
