§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the additional cost faced by local education authorities in Wales arising from the movement of each non-Welsh speaking child into schools where Welsh is the normal language of education(a) at primary level and (b) at secondary level; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
We have made no such estimates. The costs of Welsh medium education are, however, taken into account in the annual local government financial settlement.
