To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what progress has been made in reducing the size of infant classes in South Gloucestershire. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris
During the debate on primary schools on 19 May 1999,Official Report, column 1035, I gave the hon. Member for Northavon (Mr. Webb) figures relating to infant class size reductions in South Gloucestershire. The correct figures show that the number of pupils in infant classes of over 30 fell from 3,391 in January 1998 to 1,387 in September 1998. The projected number of children in infant classes of over 30 for September 1999 is 326.
