asked the Secretary of State for Wales what arrangements have been made for the training of speech therapists in Wales; how many applications have been received; and how many will be trained through the medium of the Welsh language.

This is a matter for the Department of Education and Science. I understand that the position is that the Cardiff local education authority has put forward a proposal to start a course for the training of speech therapists at the Llandaff College of Technology, under the auspices of the Welsh Joint Education Committee, in September 1972.
