HC Deb 23 November 1982 vol 32 c409W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will establish a Welsh equivalent of the Department of Education and Science's aspects of primary education survey.

Mr. Michael Roberts

The findings of "Primary Education in England", which was published in September 1978 following a survey of aspects of primary education, are generally applicable also in Wales. The report was complemented, in November 1978, by "Primary Education in Rural Wales" and the two documents together have since had a considerable influence on primary education in Wales which has been reinforced by the continuing work of Her Majesty's Inspectorate.
