§ Mr. Pardoe
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will estimate the average cost per pupil in two-teacher primary schools and all primary schools, respectively, in England and Wales in the latest year for which figures are available, and the average cost per secondary pupil.37W
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
The average cost per pupil in England and Wales in 1970–71 is estimated by the Institute of Municipal Treasurers and Accountants at £102.25 in primary and £187.57 in secondary schools.
Separate figures for two-teacher primary schools could not be obtained without disproportionate effort and cost.
