HC Deb 08 February 1995 vol 254 cc246-7W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) if he will visit language units in Clwyd; and if he will make a statement.

(2) what is his policy concerning language units in maintained schools in Wales;

(3) which language units he has visited in (a) Clwyd and (b) Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Richards

Neither my right hon. Friend nor I has yet paid a specific visit to a language unit but I will bear it in mind for my future programme. It is the responsibility of local education authorities and schools to make appropriate provision for pupils, including those children with special educational needs who may need support from a speech and language unit.
