HC Deb 20 April 1972 vol 835 c147W
Mr. Paget

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what action she proposes to take on the resolution submitted by Sale Borough Council and supported by Northampton Borough Council urging that more facilities be provided for nursery schools.

Mr. van Straubenzee

The borough councils have been informed that my right hon. Friend shares their belief in the value of nursery education. Its expansion in deprived areas is continuing under the Urban Programme but elsewhere the first priority for the present is the improvement and replacement of old primary schools.
