HC Deb 20 May 1998 vol 312 c417W
Mr. Gareth Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the role of environmental education in Wales. [42308]

Mr. Win Griffiths

Environmental education has an important part to play in delivering our sustainable development policy. I am pleased to say that the Environmental Education Council for Wales, set up to develop and co-ordinate efforts to further environmental education, is developing an environmental education strategy for Wales and will launch the first phase of its environment Network centres this summer.
