§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales, further to his answer of 13 December 1979, Official Report, c. 756, regarding the teaching of Welsh history in schools, what steps he has taken to ensure a place for the teaching of Welsh history in the school curriculum; why no mention was made of Welsh history in his document "The School Curriculum" published recently; and what proposals he has for the teaching of Welsh history in schools.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
The provision of Welsh history in the school curriculum is a matter for local education authorities and schools to determine within the general guidelines set out in "The School Curriculum". Complementary guidelines concerning the teaching of Welsh and general provision of a Welsh dimension in the school curriculum will be issued later this year.
