HC Deb 28 November 1946 vol 430 cc344-5W
105. Mr. Richards

asked the Minister of Education whether she will make a statement on the recent discussions that she has had with the Central Welsh Board and the Federation of Education Committees.

Mr. Hardman

As a result of these discussions, my right hon. Friend has appointed a working party to investigate the desirability and practicability of establishing a new central joint body for Wales and Monmouthshire in the form of a joint education committee under Part II of the First Schedule to the Education Act, 1944. The terms of reference have been indicated in Circular Wales No. 6, dated 26th November, a copy of which I am sending my hon. Friend together with a list of the members of the working party.
