Can the Minister explain why the 11-plus selections in Thornabyon-Tees are not only so low but also require a correction of one-third, as compared with one-eighth for the North Riding as a whole? Does he not agree that the large number of late developers in Thornaby indicates poor provision of bath primary and secondary education?
