>> You may be interested to note that Leighton Andrews, Minister for Education
and Skills plans to revise legislation in the area of elective home education
and we will shortly go out to consultation on the proposed changes. We welcome
your views and if you wish to provide them you will be able to do so through the
consultation section of the Welsh Government's website once the consultation has
launched. We expect this to be in early September.

All I know is that a survey took place sometime ago with input from home

Hope this helps
