§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the streamlined package of tests for seven-year-olds in schools in Wales.
§ Mr. David Hunt
This year's national tests for seven-year-olds have recently been conducted in all schools in Wales. Results for individual pupils will be made available to parents as part of the pupil's annual school report. National aggregate data for each subject covered by the tests will be published in the autumn. As with the 1991 tests, this year's exercise will be fully evaluated by the School Examinations and Assessment Council.
