HC Deb 22 January 1982 vol 16 cc194-5W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what were the perinatal and infant mortality rates, respectively, for each social class where babies were born into married households in West Glamorgan in each of the last five years.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Because of the very small numbers of perinatal and infant deaths involved, the rates at county level are calculated only for a period of two years, and should still be used with caution. The figures for 1975–76 and for 1977–78 are given in the following table. Figures for 1979–80 are not yet available.

Friend, to cease to maintain the Amy Johnson and Riley high schools in September 1983; to establish a new mixed high school in the later's premises on the same date; and to reduce admissions to both schools from September 1982 by 79 and 133 places, respectively. The Department has acknowledged receipt of the proposals; but the statutory two-month periods for objections does not expire until 16 February and, if there are such objections, the authority has until 16 March to submit these and their comments to my right hon. Friend.

Mr. McNamara

asked the Secetary of State for Education and Science whether he has received a request from Humberside education committee for the construction of a new senior high school in Bransholme, Hull; what discussions have taken place with his Department; and what reply he has sent.

Dr. Boyson

There have been discussions between officers of the authority and officials of the Department, but the authority has yet to publish statutory proposals.
