HC Deb 22 January 1942 vol 377 cc410-1
36. Mr. Lindsay

asked the Minister of Health how many day nurseries have now been established in England and Wales?

Mr. E. Brown

At the end of December, 1941, 223 day nurseries were in operation in England and Wales; 313 more were approved but not in operation, and 267 were in preparation.

Mr. Lindsay

In view of the slow progress that is being made, I beg to give notice that I will raise this matter on the Adjournment at the earliest possible moment.
