Mr. Alan Williams
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what estimate he has made of the cost in Wales of providing brochures required under the Education Act 1981; how many have been distributed to parents and how many are still in storage; and how many have been made available in the Welsh language.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
There is no requirement under the Education Act 1981 to provide brochures. The Education (School Information) Regulations 1981, made under powers conferred by the Education Act 1980, relate to the publication of information on schools, including provision for publication in Welsh. No information is held centrally on the costs of such information, distribution or Welsh language provision.
