HC Deb 22 November 1962 vol 667 cc139-40W
20. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

asked the Minister of Education what has been the increase in weekly boarding places in State secondary schools during the past 12 months.

Mr. Chataway

The total number of boarding places at maintained primary and secondary schools rose slightly during 1961, from 9,604 to 9,714. I cannot give figures for weekly boarders alone.
