HC Deb 04 February 1980 vol 978 c75W
Mr. Straw

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what advice he has given to local authorities on the provision of day nurseries, and other facilities for day care for children under five years.

Sir George Young

The most recent guidance has been in two joint Department of Health and Social Security—Department of Education and Science circulars (DHSS LASSL(76)5/ DES Ref No S21/47/05 and DHSS LASSL(78)1/ HN(78)5/ DES Ref No S47/24/013), the contents of which I fully endorse.
