§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many places in nursery classes are available in 1975 within the area corresponding as nearly as possible to the Colne Valley constituency; and how many he expects to be available in 1976.
§ Mr. Armstrong
The information asked for is not collected on a constituency basis by my Department. In the summer of 1974 there were a total of 840 full-time equivalent places available in nursery classes or schools in the metropolitan district of Kirklees. Kirklees has an allocation of £360,000 for nursery education building starts in 1974–75. It is for local education authorities to decide which individual projects should be started within their allocations.
