§ Mrs. Ewing
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what steps she will take to deal with the difficulties in the way of child care facilities which are expected to worsen in the next few years.
§ Mr. Fernyhough
The recently published Survey of Women's Employment contains material on these facilities, which are provided in the main by local authorities within the fields of responsibility of the Health and Education Departments. We have been in consultation with these Departments and intend to consider the findings of the Survey generally with the Women's Consultative Committee and the National Joint Advisory Council.
