HC Deb 27 January 1993 vol 217 c738W
Mr. Win Griffiths

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many LEAs have provided courses on basic counselling skills in the last two years; what information he has on the percentage of staff in each LEA which have been on such courses; and what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of such courses.

Sir Wyn Roberts

In the academic year 1991–92 nineteen counselling-related courses were run by colleges in seven local authorities in Wales. This is the latest year for which information is available.

No information is available centrally about the percentage of LEA staff which have been on such courses or about their effectiveness.
