HC Deb 13 December 1994 vol 251 c608W
21. Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Education how many children in Liverpool are currently educated in schools with classes of over(a) 30 children and (b) 35 children; and how many such classes there are.

Mr. Robin Squire

In January 1994, 14,250 pupils were in 439 classes of more than 30 and, of these, 960 pupils were in 26 classes of more than 35. But the great majority of Liverpool pupils were in classes smaller than these.
