asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many primary and secondary schools in Gwynedd are recognised as being below the minimum acceptable standard laid down by his Department and the Department of Education and Science; and what additional financial provision he intends making to overcome this problem.

Comprehensive detailed information on school premises is not readily available. An assessment by the Gwynedd county council indicates that 85 of the 200 primary schools in the county occupy buildings dating from pre 1903.The additional allocations for school building announced last November should make it possible for the Gwynedd local education authority and others in Wales to make a significant start on the work necessary to bring school premises up to satisfactory standards.
