HC Deb 11 April 1973 vol 854 c312W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he is satisfied with the facilities now existing in Wales for providing secondary school education to educationally subnormal children.

Mr. Peter Thomas

In January 1972, 1,557 educationally subnormal children of secondary school age were attending special schools or classes in Wales. I have already announced my intention to increase the resources available for such schools and am ready to consider any reasonable proposal from local education authorities to improve existing facilities.
