HC Deb 04 July 1972 vol 840 c114W
Mr. Bray

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will make a statement on her newly defined policy for the provision of nursery schools and the establishment of playgroups.

Mrs. Thatcher

I have recently expressed my belief in the value of nursery education and the desirability of expanding provision for the under fives as soon as resources allow. Pre-school playgroups are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services.
