asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what are the figures for 1962 and 1972, respectively, for the number of maintained secondary schools, with separate figures for modern, grammar, technical and comprehensive, of direct grant schools, and of independent schools; and how many pupils there were in each category for the same years.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The information is as follows:

industry in Stockport; and what are the figures of such trainees, at the latest date.

Mr. Chichester-Clark

I understand that the Construction Industry Training Board has 68 first- and second-year integrated training places for electrical craft trainees in Stockport and 15 training award places for initial off-the-job training in bricklaying, and all are occupied. In addition, six people who live in the Stockport area are attending for training in the building industry under the Training Opportunities Scheme.

There are also a substantial number of craft apprentices who receive on-the-job training coupled with day release. I will write to the hon. Member as soon as possible with up-to-date information on these.
