Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the annual sum of money for the year 1981–82 that will be devoted to the provision of education for (a) children under 4 years and (b) children under 5 years in each of the Welsh counties, and what these figures will represent as percentages of the total child population, in each county.

Mr. Michael Roberts

It is for individual local authorities to determine the pattern of their expenditure Cmnd 8175 however assumes current expenditure, net of urban piogramme support, in Wales on under-fives of some £17 million in 1981–82 at 1980 survey prices Provision for under-fours is not identifiable separately.
