HC Deb 03 February 1972 vol 830 cc180-1W
Mr. Armstrong

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how much money has been allocated to the Northern Region for the provision of nursery education under the Urban Aid Programme; and how much has been spent to date.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Approved capital expenditure, attracting 75 per cent. grant from the Exchequer, totals £1.02 million. This includes £0.5 million, falling mainly in 1972–73, authorised during the last three months as part of the Government's measures to assist areas of high unemployment. Actual capital expenditure to the end of 1971–72 is estimated at £0.41 million.
