I regularly meet Assembly Ministers to discuss a range of issues, including education.

Data for Wales indicate a significant rise in the number of referral unit places and pupils. The number of pupil referral units has risen from 24 in 1997 to 31 in 2004 and the number of pupils registered in the units has also risen from 49 to 1,058 in the same timescale.
