§ Mr. Win Griffiths
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he has taken to monitor the way in which local education authorities have assessed the number of schools in their areas which would particularly benefit from school-police liaison projects; and what percentage of such schools in each local education authority have these projects.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
The Education (No. 2) Act 1986 requires governing bodies to report annually to parents on steps taken to strengthen links with the community, including the police. Generally, I would expect them to foster good relationships with their local police force.
