§ Mr. Sandelson
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many comprehensive schools in England and Wales are without sixth form facilities; and what proportion of the total number of comprehensive schools this represents.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The information is not available precisely in this form. Of a total of 1,423 comprehensive schools in England in January 1972 there were 370, amounting to 26 per cent., mainly for pupils up to the minimum school-leaving age.
