HC Deb 12 March 1973 vol 852 cc245-6W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many four-year-old children attend nursery school in Staffordshire; and what proportion this is of all four-year-old children in Staffordshire.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

In January 1972, there were 479 full-time and part-time pupils aged four in maintained nursery schools in Staffordshire, together with 1,874 in maintained primary schools. Together these numbers were equivalent to 16£8 per cent. of births in 1967.
