asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the secondary schools in each local education authority in Wales in which it is possible for pupils (a) to undertake most or all of their education through the medium of the Welsh language, and (b) to undertake part of their education through the medium of Welsh; and if he will indicate the schools in which no teaching, or very little teaching is done through the medium of Welsh.

Information in the form requested is not readily available.The following provisional information for September 1986 indicates, however, those schools in which none of the teaching is undertaken through the medium of Welsh and those in which at least some of the teaching is undertaken through the medium of Welsh. For each school in the latter category the number of subjects offered through the medium of Welsh is given.
