HC Deb 08 February 1962 vol 653 c90W
Mr. P. Browne

asked the Minister of Education what directions he has issued to local educational authorities as to the maximum numbers of children permissible in primary schools.

Sir D. Eccles

None. But separate schools or departments, each with its own head teacher, are normally provided where the numbers of pupils approach about 250 infants or 300 juniors.
