asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the number of Welsh primary schools and of Welsh secondary schools in Wales at present; and what further provision of Welsh schools at the primary and secondary levels is contemplated.

Mr. Prentice

Thirty-four Welsh primary schools and five Welsh secondary schools and departments have been established in mainly English-speaking areas in Wales. The Major School Building Programmes for 1965 to 1968 include extensions to Rhyl Welsh County Secondary School, Flintshire; Rhydfelen Welsh County Secondary School, Glamorgan; a new Welsh secondary school for West Glamorgan and a Welsh primary school for Rhyl, Flintshire, in replacement of old premises.
