HC Deb 23 November 1979 vol 974 c401W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will use his statutory default powers to ensure that nursery education continues to be provided in Oxfordshire following the decision of Oxfordshire county council to close all nursery schools and classes.

Mr. Mark Carlisle

No. I am writing to Oxfordshire county council to ask it to give me details of the decision it is reported to have taken and of its implications.
