Oral Answers to Questions — Education. – in the House of Commons on 27th November 1930.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the President of the Board of Education what will be the average number of children in a class on 1st April, 1931, in the event of the Education (School Attendance) Bill becoming law?
The average number of children in a class in public elementary schools on 31st March, 1930, was 36. I am unable to state what the average number will be on 1st April next.
Marquess of TITCHFIELD:
Does not this show what a complete farce the whole Bill is?
I am perfectly aware that to take an average number for the whole of England is a farce. I have answered the Noble Lord's question.
Is not the answer something like 60 or 70 in a class?
