asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many children left school in Wales in 1978; and what are the estimated figures for school leavers in 1979.

Final data on school leavers during the academic year 1977–78 are not yet available but our provisional estimate is around 44.000. On the basis of past trends I would expect the current year's figure to be somewhat higher.
