asked the Minister of Education how many children in the City of Cardiff failed to gain entrance into secondary schools this year; how many children were admitted to the Cardiff Education Committee secondary schools; and at what date is it proposed to give secondary education to all Cardiff children over the age of n years.

The number of candidates who presented themselves for the entrance examination for the Cardiff High Schools this year was 2,267. 897 of these were admitted to the schools. The development plan now in course of preparation by the local education authority will indicate their proposals for providing secondary education for all senior children in the area, but it is impossible to give any forecast of the date by which such provision will be completed.
