§ 28. Mr. WESTWOOD
asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland the average cost of educating pupils in Scottish primary, intermediate and secondary schools from local rates and from Imperial grants?
§ The SOLICITOR-GENERAL for SCOTLAND
As separate accounts are not kept for the different grades of school, it is not possible to state the cost per pupil for each grade separately. In the year 1920–21, the latest for which audited accounts are available, the net expenditure of education authorities for all purposes amounted to £12.58 per pupil, of which £5.36 per pupil fell upon local rates and £7.22 per pupil was met by Imperial grants.
