WQ85010 (e) Tabled on 22/04/2022

Will the Minister clarify whether the opt in policy for the book commissioned to mark the Queen’s Jubilee was discussed with Sian Gwenllian MS, Plaid Cymru designated lead member, as part of the Co-operation Agreement between the Welsh Government and Plaid Cymru?

Primary schools will be able to order the books through the UK Government’s Department of Education and we communicated details of the order process in this week’s Dysg Newsletter. The books will be distributed by the publisher and delivered to schools who opt to receive them in September.  All costs in relation to the publishing and distribution of the Queen’s Jubilee Book across devolved Governments are being managed by the UK Government.

The Queen’s Jubilee Book is not part of the Co-operation Agreement with Plaid Cymru.
