HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 c307W
Mr. Marks

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the proportion of primary classes containing more than 40 pupils in England, Lancashire LEA area, and Lancashire Division No. 24.

Mrs. Thatcher

In January 1972, 2.9 per cent. in England and 5.2 per cent. in Lancashire. The Department's statistics are not analysed for districts or divisions within a local education authority area; such information can however be sought from the authority.
