§ 16. Sir R. THOMAS
asked the President of the Board of Education the number of schools in Wales in which the Welsh language is taught; and what is the proportion of these schools to the whole?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Duchess of Atholl)
Welsh is taught in all except nine of the 141 secondary schools in Wales on the grant list. As regards public elementary schools my right hon. Friend cannot give the exact number, but he understands that Welsh is taught in practically every school in Welsh-speaking districts and that in other districts it is taught in a large number of the schools. The question will no doubt be fully discussed in the Report of the late Bishop of St. David's Committee, which will shortly be presented.
