HC Deb 22 May 1974 vol 874 c200W
Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many pupils attending comprehensive schools are receiving part-time education; and what percentage attend Inner London Education Authority schools.

Mr. Armstrong

The number of secondary schools and pupils affected by part-time schooling has fluctuated from week to week but has never amounted to more than a very small proportion of the total in the country. Of the small number of schools so affected, ILEA schools, most of which are comprehensive schools, have probably represented about one-third, but precise information about the number of comprehensive school pupils concerned, in Inner London and elsewhere, is not available.
