HC Deb 08 July 1977 vol 934 cc689-90W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the average class size in primary schools in the Leek parliamentary constituency; and how this figure compares with the figure for England and Wales.

Miss Margaret Jackson

Statistics are not compiled for individual parliamentary constituencies by my Department. In January 1976, the latest date for which information is available, the average size of a primary class—as registered—in the county of Stafford as a whole was 29.6 pupils. The corresponding figure for England and Wales was 29.2 pupils.
