asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will publish in the Official Report, in respect of the secondary schools allocation procedure of those education authorities who have not yet introduced a comprehensive system, the numbers of each sex who participated in the allocation procedure for the current school year, how many were entered from local education authority schools and how many from independent schools, the total number of children selected by each authority, and how many came from local education authority and from independent schools.

Only Kingston-upon-Thames has no compreensive schools in the current school year. In January 1974 there were 779 boys and 808 girls aged 11 in maintained schools in Kingston.
