HC Deb 28 January 1974 vol 868 c27W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will give truancy figures for State schools in Bedfordshire indicating the percentage thereof of total children attending county schools.

Mr. Raison

Head teachers of maintained middle and secondary schools have been asked for a count of pupils absent from school on a day in January. It is hoped that results will have been collated by early summer.
