HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 c86W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many nursery units there are in the Clwyd local education authority; what is his estimate of the numbers proposed for closure consequent upon the announcement of the Budget Statement regarding cuts in education expenditure; how many pupils are in these units; how many teachers, nursery assistants and ancillary staff will be redeployed or made redundant; what is the total estimated savings to be made by the proposed closures; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Roberts

I understand that the Clwyd local education authority maintains 52 nursery units. It is for the authority to consider how to achieve the expenditure reductions called for by the Government.
