asked the Minister of Education what were the numbers of entrants to grammar schools for the years 1958, 1959 and 1960; and what are the estimated figures for 1961 and 1962.

The numbers of entrants to maintained and direct grant grammar schools were 147,000 in 1958 and 142,000 in 1959. For the years 1960 to 1962 I estimate these numbers approximately, as 130,000, 125,000 and 120,000.
