asked the President of the Board of Education the name of any county in which children are obliged to attend school beyond the age of 14 where maintenance allowances are granted to such children to enable them to attend school after that age?

The education authority for the County of Carnarvonshire has adopted a byelaw requiring attendance at school up to the age of 15, and has also in operation a scheme of maintenance allowances for children over the age of 14.

Will the right hon. Gentleman take note that the question was meant to refer to "country" and not "county"?

Are all the maintenance allowances given by Carnarvonshire on a flat rate?

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a flat rate in Carnarvonshire of 3s. a week?
