HC Deb 05 March 1970 vol 797 c144W
62. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will withdraw the circular limiting the number of nursery-school places and take steps to make more places available other than in the urban programme.

Miss Lestor

I am aware of the need for more provision for under 5's. This has to be considered together with other claims on resources for education and the other social services but I hope it will be possible to withdraw Circular 8/60 before too long.
