HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 cc706-7W
Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many day nursery places exist in the Bradford, West constituency area; and when it is planned to increase this number and by how many.

Mr. Moyle:

Information is not available centrally about provision within particular parliamentary constituencies. At 31st March 1978 in the Bradford metropolitan district there were 452 places in local authority day nurseries, and private premises were registered to provide all day care for up to 211 children.

I understand that the local authority has no immediate plans for further provision; no information is available about possible increases in private provision.
