§ Mr. Anderson
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has for increased nursery school provision in Wales.
§ Miss Lestor:
Part of the urban programme for socially deprived areas, for which the Government has set aside £24 million over four years is being devoted to nursery education. Projects to provide about 300 additional places in nursery schools and classes in Wales at a cost of £83,475 were included in the programme for 1969–70. It is expected that there will be further allocations for nursery education in the urban programme over the next two years.
