asked the President of the Board of Education the number of secondary scholars in each of the secondary schools in Liverpool for the years 1937–38 to 1942–43, inclusive; the number of new entrants into each of the secondary schools for the years 1937–38 to 1942–43, inclusive; and the number of students at each of the technical and trade schools, including the central technical school, for the years 1937–38 to 1942–43, inclusive?
As the answer is long and statistical in form I am sending direct to the hon. Member the information for which he asks. In the case of technical institutions it is regretted that, owing to restriction of returns in war-time, figures are not available for individual schools. No figures are available for such institutions in respect of the year 1938–39.
