HC Deb 08 March 1983 vol 38 c353W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales following the recommendations of the Cockcroft report, paragraph 758, concerning the need for more mathematical education centres, if he will establish such a centre in Wales, which would include in its work considerations relating to the teaching of mathematics through the Welsh language.

Mr. John Stradling Thomas

It is for appropriate institutions, in consultation with local education authorities and others, initially to decide whether they could adequately develop such a centre. The Welsh Office would be ready to offer advice and guidance if this were sought.
