HC Deb 19 October 1973 vol 861 cc320-1W
Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many nursery places on a full-time equivalent basis she expects to allocate to Derbyshire County Council for the years 1974–76.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The block allocations to Derbyshire County Council under the nursery building programmes for 1974–75 and 1975–76 were £305,000 in each year. These allocations should be sufficient to provide at least 1,250 full-time equivalent places. The actual figure could be a good deal larger, depending on the number of places which the authority is able to provide by adapting existing accommodation.
