HC Deb 16 January 1990 vol 165 cc180-1W
Mr. Geraint Howells

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what are the latest developments regarding the proposed bilingual school, Preseli, Pembrokeshire; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Dyfed county council published proposals under section 12 of the Education Act 1980 on 22 November 1989 to establish a bilingual comprehensive school in the premises of the existing Preseli county secondary school. The law prescribes that, if statutory objections to the proposals are received by the county council, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State must decide whether to approve or reject the proposals.
