HC Deb 23 January 1973 vol 849 cc136-9W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what educational results are expected as a result of the urban aid programme.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Over 24,000 additional places are being provided in nursery schools and classes in England and Wales under the urban programme. It is hoped that the children who benefit from this additional provision will be given a sound basis for their further education and that the experience will help to reduce the disadvantages of cultural and economic deprivation.

Mr. Moyle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proposals she has approved under the Urban Aid Programme, Phase 7; and what is the allocation of finance to each proposal approved.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department has approved the following educational projects under Phase 7 of the Urban Programme:
