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. 
§ 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.
