§ Mr. Morley
asked the Minister of Education the number of grammar schools for physically-handicapped children; the number of pupils in such schools; whether he is satisfied that the provision is adequate; or what steps he is taking to increase the provision.
§ Sir D. Eccles
There are no grammar schools for physically - handicapped children. A survey recently made by one of my medical officers in co-operation with Her Majesty's Inspectors shows that many of these children are successfully placed in ordinary grammar schools, but that special residential provision may be needed for some of the more seriously handicapped. I shall consider, in the light of the inquiries I am making of all local education authorities, whether the total requirement would justify this.
