§ 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.
