HC Deb 15 March 1993 vol 221 cc60-1W
Dr. Marek

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make it his policy to assist in the relocation of Yale sixth form college to the Grove Park school/War Memorial hospital site in Wrexham.

Sir Wyn Roberts

Under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 responsibility for securing the provision of further education, including provision in sixth form colleges, will pass from the local education authorities to the Further Education Funding Council for Wales (FEFCW) on 1 April.

The FEFCW has established a group to consider, and to provide it with advice about, further education requirements in Wrexham and what accommodation arrangements are needed. The group, which includes representatives from Yale sixth form college, the North East Wales Institute of Higher Education and the North East Wales training and enterprise council will consider all options including the relocation of the college to the Grove Park school/War Memorial hospital site.
