asked the Secretary of State for Wales what part he proposes to take in consultations on the White Paper, "Better Schools", Cmnd. 9469; and if he will make a statement.
I am, of course, fully associated with the consultations being undertaken by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science and I or my representatives will attend these as appropriate. I have already invited the Welsh Joint Education Committee to discuss "Better Schools" at its next meeting on 29 April and I am also writing to other major organisations in Wales inviting them to the Welsh Office to discuss the Government's policies.
