HC Deb 11 October 1945 vol 414 c453W
Mr. W. J. Brown

asked the Minister of Health whether he will arrange for the day nurseries to be continued until conditions become normal in Britain.

Mrs. Castle

asked the Minister of Health whether, pending the establishment of an adequate number of nursery schools, he will consider retaining the war-time nurseries as emergency nurseries eligible for 100 per cent. grant from his Department, for the use of all mothers who go out to work.

Mr. Bevan

The matter is under consideration, and I hope to give welfare authorities further guidance shortly.
