§ Mr. Knox
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, from information available from international sources, what was the pupil/teacher ratio in primary schools in West Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, respectively in the most recent year for which statistics are available; and how this compares with the pupil-teacher ratio in primary schools in England and Wales for the same year.

I would refer my hon. Friend to my answer to his Question on 24th April which included the relevant pupil-teacher ratios.
