asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) what she estimates will be the primary school population in Cleveland in 1985 compared with 1974; (2) what she estimates the secondary school population in Cleveland will be in 1979 and in 1991.

Due to various local factors, reliable projections of the school population in individual local education authority areas can only be made in the light of detailed local knowledge which is not collated by my Department. I understand from the Cleveland local education authority, however, that its estimates of the numbers, assuming no increase in births in future years, are as follows:

Academic Years
Primary schools74,00053,000
Academic Years
Secondary schools57,00041,000
