HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 cc678-9W
Mr. Leadbitter

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many classes of more than 30 pupils exist in each of the present counties in the Northern Region; how many have more than 40 pupils; and how these figures compare with 1970.

Mrs. Thatcher

The information is as follows:

behalf of overseas Governments; and what potential liability is falling on British public funds as a result of default on the loan.

Mr. Wood

The Crown Agents did not raise money for the purpose of making a loan to Vehicle and General Insurance. The loan was financed from within the total sums available to the Crown Agents for application in the normal course of their business, and was not advanced on behalf of any overseas Government. Full provision to cover the amount was made in the Crown Agents accounts for 1970. No liability falls on overseas Governments' funds, nor is there any question of liability falling on British public funds.
