HC Deb 24 February 1955 vol 537 c188W
83. Miss Bacon

asked the Minister of Education if he will give an assurance that adequate grammar school facilities will be available to avoid the percentage of children admitted to such schools falling in the next two years.

Sir D. Eccles

The percentage of grammar school places is part of the larger problem of secondary education which I am now studying. When I am ready I shall give some guidance to local education authorities on this matter. I can reassure the hon. Lady that I shall examine very critically any proposals for absorbing grammar schools into comprehensive schools.
