§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has had from teachers and parents concerning (a) a national curriculum, (b) student grants and (c) proposals on teachers' pay; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
We have received five letters from members of the public regarding a national curriculum and 23 letters in the last six months about various aspects of student financial support. On 30 October my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science announced new proposals for teachers' pay, since when I have received 32 representations on this subject.
