§ Mr. Win Griffiths
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish for each county education authority the number of teachers needed to(a) deliver Welsh language teaching at the primary and secondary levels as required by the national curriculum and (b) deliver all national curriculum subjects in Welsh secondary schools by teachers with the appropriate subject qualifications.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
The current estimate, based on 1988 pupil numbers, of the number of teachers required to deliver Welsh language teaching when the national curriculum is fully implemented is:868W
LEA Primary Secondary Clwyd 498 128 Dyfed 933 119 Gwent 278 128 Gwynedd 969 97 Mid Glamorgan 560 165 Powys 146 38 South Glamorgan 290 115 West Glamorgan 338 105 Wales 4,012 895
These estimates are being revised and will take account of more recent information on pupil numbers.
Estimates of the number of teachers required to teach subjects within the national curriculum will be available only when the results of the 1989 secondary schools staffing survey are available and have been analysed.
