HC Deb 05 December 1972 vol 847 c386W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will provide a table of what it costs in each education authority to educate a primary pupil and a secondary pupil, respectively; and how the average cost compares with England and Wales.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

This information is not available in the form requested but the latest estimates of the average cost per pupil in all schools and in primary and secondary schools are given on page 187 of "Scottish Educational Statistics 1971". Because of differences in school organisation figures for England and Wales would not be comparable.
