Lord Lester of Herne Hill asked Her Majesty's Government:

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Home Office (Lord Williams of Mostyn): I refer the noble Lord to the remarks of the Lord Chancellor on this point during the Third Reading debate on the Human Rights Bill in the House of Lords on Thursday 5 February. [H.L. Deb., col. 480].

Wales: Analysis of GCSE Results 1994-97

Baroness Blatch asked Her Majesty's Government:

Lord Williams of Mostyn: Information for independent and all schools was given in my reply of 11 February (WA 209). Information on GCSE results is usually given for those pupils aged 15 at the start of the academic year (i.e. those who become 16 during the school year). Information for these pupils, for state schools in Wales, is given in the following tables. There are no "modern" or "grammar" schools in Wales.
