HC Deb 09 April 1957 vol 568 cc115-6W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

s asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state for each local authority in Scotland the percentage of young people between the ages of 15 and 18 years attending full-time courses of education, day release courses of education and evening courses of education.

Mr. Maclay

s It is not possible to give figures for each local authority's area, because many students attend educational institutions outside the areas to which they belong. For Scotland as a whole in January, 1956, the latest date for which information is available, the figures were 17 per cent. in full-time courses, 7 per cent. in part-time day-release courses, and 22 per cent. in other part-time (mainly evening) courses.
