§ Mr. Ron Davies
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the names of the schools which have(a) achieved grant-maintained status, (b) been given permission to go ahead and (c) been refused permission to go ahead; and if he will express each category as a percentage of the total number of non-private schools in Wales.
§ Mr. David Hunt
Since my right hon. Friend's reply of 27 January, at column743, we have approved a further three schools for grant-maintained status. They are Maelor comprehensive, Clwyd; Ysgol Caergeiliog primary, Gwynedd; and Stanwell comprehensive, South Glamorgan. All three will become grant-maintained on 1 April. No applications for grant-maintained status have been turned down in this period.
