§ Mr. Dunn
We share my hon. Friend's concern about the teaching of foreign languages in schools. On 17 May the Department and the Welsh Office issued a consultative paper on this subject, a copy of which is in the Library. It puts forward a number of policy issues for discussion. In the light of the views which my right hon. Friends receive on the paper, they will consider the form and content of a statement of national policy on foreign languages in the school curriculum.
