I emailed the Welsh Assembly  a week ago voicing my concern over plans to scrap the Welsh F.L.O position in April 2012. I had a reply off them which I've attached.

Well "most" could do with putting some batteries in their machines or giving up and taking up fishing.
These are finds recorded with PAS for 2011 as of this morning. The finds are recorded on location found not where recorded.

Swansea......................60
Bridgend.......................9
Rhondda ....................10
Newport.......................48
Torfaen.........................9
Monmouthshire..........233
Vale Of Glamorgan....213
Neath Port Talbot..........5

Now that's for 10 months and just to put it in perspective I have detected 21 fields in the last 10 months, all of which are on the Polden hills nr Bridgwater and although I have been lucky with some they are nothing too spectacular.
And I have recorded 193 finds out of those fields. So are people being selective in what they record? If so that's not quite the idea of the scheme.
Have your records appeared? I know some of Taff's seem to have never made it on to the database, although he has the printouts from the FLO, if so complain.
Does anyone on here other than me self record? If not think about it it's simple.

Now I am not one to bang on about "you must record" because I believe that it is down to the individual, but after hearing people complain that they might of lost the scheme from Wales and then seeing the statistics, it made my blood boil a little.

I am glad the the flo,s are keeping their jobs in Wales.It shows a MARK of respect for them in their field.
Looking at the list of recorded finds (which maybe more) for 2011 and those which have been recorded for 2012 (not known) it will take the FLO another 5 years to return them all to their finders.LOL

I don,t know how the system actually works but My local FLO Peter Reavill though I doubt he would admit it is snowed under and does a fantastic job. Just under two years ago I took a tin of flints into him of at least a couple of hundred different scrapers, burins, rods etc all from the same field. He has kept me informed on their progression but imagine having to draw, photograph and record these alone. I know he has had two hoards to deal with as well but he will be the first to say if we did not keep him busy so as Chef says as I know quite a few do come up to Herefordshire detecting if you find something to record do not think twice about it. He was well pleased with Our rallies last year when some of the finds literally changed the history of the area. Good thread.

Geoff - the figures available from the online database are not complete. It appears to me that very many of the finds recorded by Mark Lodwick do not appear there. I don't know why this is the case - they are recorded as we get the printouts back from Mark.
