§ Mr. William Edwards
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, how many vacancies exist in Wales for speech therapists; how many vacancies 287W have been advertised without any application; and what steps he has taken to ensure the training and recruiting of more speech therapists.
§ Mr. Edward Short
In Wales, in December, 1967, there were 11 full-time vacancies for speech therapists employed by local education authorities. I regret that I have no information about advertisements of such posts.
A proposal about the training of speech therapists in Wales is at present under consideration in the Department.
