Alex Carlile, Liberal Democrat MP for Montgomery, asked Welsh secretary William Hague: how many Welsh primary schools teach using Welsh; what was the average class size in these schools as of 31 December for each of the last five years, and what was the average cost of teaching staff in each of the last five years (Hansard 27 Jan, written answers, column 46).

Mr Hague responded:

'At January 1996, 561 primary schools had classes where at least part of the curriculum was taught using Welsh. The average class size in these schools was 23.6 pupils, in January 1995 it was 23.5, and in January 1994 it was 23.1.

'Figures for the other years were not produced because of cost. There are no figures available for average teaching costs.'
