asked the Minister of Education (1) how many school children in the six North Wales counties have been ascertained by local education authorities as being in need of speech therapy;

(2) what are the arrangements of the local education authorities in North Wales for the provision of speech therapy for school children.

Mr. Vosper

There are about 570 school children in North Wales in need of speech therapy. Rather more than 200 of them are already receiving treatment from therapists employed by some of the local education authorities in the area.
