§ Mr. Bence
Would my hon. Friend consider recommending that some aid be given to these organisations, because they are doing excellent work? I feel sure that they would submit themselves to some surveillance and control. This is a highly desirable project, and I feel sure that some grant in aid would be welcomed by the Association.
§ Mrs. Hart
One is very glad indeed to see these play groups embarked upon, because they are very useful. We give a small grant to the Nursery Schools Association and some local education authorities make grants. It is a matter which my right hon. Friend would need to discuss with local education authorities.
Would my hon. Friend consider the possibility of encouraging local authorities to start a nursery class in each school as a means of encouraging married women teachers to return to teaching?
