HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc373-4W
Sir P. Agnew

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science to what extent the Worcestershire County Council is unable, in the case of boys and girls, respectively, who have qualified for entry to grammar schools, to offer places in schools in the county; and when he expects the deficiency will be made good by the provision of sufficient grammar school accommodation in Worcestershire.

Mr. Hogg

The Worcestershire local education authority take annually some 150 grammar school places at schools outside the county area, in approximately equal number for boys and girls. The schools are mainly in Worcester. The Worcestershire authority has not proposed to build any additional grammar schools in the county area.
