Mr. Rowlands

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many classes in primary schools in Cardiff are over 40 in size; and how this compares with the national average.

Mr. Redhead

145 classes in Cardiff's maintained primary schools had more than 40 pupils in January 1966. They represented 19.0 per cent. of all primary school classes. The corresponding percentage in England and Wales was 11.7 per cent.
