HC Deb 05 February 1942 vol 377 c1289W
Miss Rathbone

asked the Minister of Health the amount of capital expenditure already sanctioned for the provision and equipment of whole-time nurseries for the children of women workers; the number of children for which this expenditure provides; the average cost of administration and maintenance per child per week to public funds in those whole-time nurseries that have been open for six months or more; and the ratio of staff to children in these nurseries?

Mr. E. Brown

To ascertain the information asked for would entail a disproportionate amount of labour. I will send my hon. Friend such information on the points mentioned as is readily available.
