asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is satisfied that in the course of his recent visit to North Wales he was given an opportunity of seeing a fair sample of the elementary schools in that part of the country?

Although I have a very limited time available for visiting educational institutions in North Wales, I was able to visit a technical institute, three secondary schools, the Adult Residential College at Harlech and four elementary schools. While it was not possible in the time at my disposal to study all types of elementary school, I feel that, in the circumstances, the time at my disposal was usefully occupied, and I hope at a future date to have further opportunities of visiting schools in Wales.

Will the right hon. Gentleman seize the next opportunity to see some of the worst schools in the rural areas?
