To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the implications for peripatetic music teaching of local management of schools.

We are not aware that music provision, including the peripatetic music service, has been adversely affected by the introduction of local management of schools. Parents will want to see music provision maintained in the schools their children attend, and so will governors. We confidently expect that the delegation of control to governors will lead to an enrichment in the education experience provided by schools.
