asked the Minister of Education if he is aware of complaints by parents in Splott and Adams-down, Cardiff, about the absence of proper buildings for secondary education in the area; and what provision he proposes to make in his next building programme.

No. I have not received any proposals from the Cardiff Local Education Authority for new school provision in this area. Any such proposals would be considered on their merits.

asked the Minister of Education when the Church in Wales will be authorised to build a new secondary school in Cardiff in order that the existing all-age schools may be reorganised as junior schools; and whether he will make a statement.

The first of the two secondary schools required to reorganise the Church in Wales schools in Cardiff is now under construction. The second project will be considered for inclusion in the 1964–65 building programme.

asked the Minister of Education why he has not sanctioned the building of the Llandaff Church in Wales Primary School in the 1963 building programme; and whether, in view of the overcrowding in the present school, he will give further consideration to this matter.

I accept that a new school is needed but there are others in Cardiff more urgent and this project cannot therefore be included in the 1963–64 building programme.
