HC Deb 16 January 1964 vol 687 c56W
Miss Quennell

asked the Minister of Education what percentage of registered pupils is classified as educationally sub-normal.

Sir E. Boyle

Local education authorities are responsible forproviding special educational treatment for children who are educationally sub-normal, but I encourage them to do so, so far as possible, without any formal process of classification and no statistics are therefore available.
