HC Deb 11 March 1957 vol 566 c126W
64. Sir F. Medlicott

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the concern which is being caused by the gradual reduction in the facilities provided by local authorities for the daytime care of children up to five years of age; and if he will consider the possibility of reversing by legislation or otherwise the present trend of policy in this matter.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

This is a matter which must be determined by the local health authorities themselves in the light of local needs and circumstances.
