HC Deb 01 November 1979 vol 972 cc624-5W
Mr. Geraint Howells

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what plans there are for expanding nursery school places in Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Roberts

It is for local education authorities to determine what nursery provision should be made in their areas, taking account of the resources at their disposal. Resources allocated to nursery building in 1979–80 should allow some 230 additional places to be provided in Wales.
