The Rev. LI. Williams
asked the Minister of Education, how many all-age schools there are in Wales and Monmouthshire, how many Roman Catholic aided schools, how many Church in 166W Wales aided schools, and how many single-school areas, respectively.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
There are 89 all-age schools in Wales and Monmouthshire. In January, 1958, there were 105 Church in Wales aided schools or departments and 81 Roman Catholic aided schools or departments. About 60 of the Church in Wales aided schools or departments are in rural areas but I cannot say precisely how many of these are in areas where alternative provision is not readily available. I am not aware of any Roman Catholic aided school which would fall in this category.
