§ 26. Mr. W. Yates
asked the Minister of Education how many nursery schools are maintained with Government support in the county of Shropshire and in the Wrekin division; and what is Her Majesty's Government's policy for increasing the number of nursery schools in Shropshire and in the Wrekin division.
§ Sir E. Boyle
The local education authority maintain three nursery schools in Shropshire, one of them in the Wrekin division. I cannot at present authorise any expansion of nursery education, save in those cases where an authority can satisfy me that the establishment of a new nursery class in existing buildings will enable a number of qualified married women to return to teaching in maintained schools.
