HC Deb 21 March 1994 vol 240 c61W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what are the totals of money spent from his Department on promoting Cornish language, history and culture in each of the past 15 years.

Mr. Robin Squire

My right hon. Friend does not make specific provision for this purpose. Schools are free to teach the Cornish language if there is sufficient demand and they have the resources to do so. National curriculum geography requires that all pupils develop a knowledge and understanding of their local area and there is provision in national curriculum history to study local history.
