HC Deb 07 July 1955 vol 543 c115W
60. Miss Bacon

asked the Minister of Education what steps he proposes to take to ensure that the increased secondary school population will not lead to a reduction in the percentage of grammar school places available.

Sir D. Eccles

I have asked authorities to see that unless circumstances are exceptional, grammar and technical places should be available for from 15 per cent. to 25 per cent. of a secondary age group.
