HC Deb 07 April 1987 vol 114 c193W
33. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will consider issuing new guidelines for local authorities and other public and private agencies promoting home-visitor programmes for single parent families with infant age children and related similar groups.

Mrs. Currie

We intend to issue fresh guidance on the provision of day care services for pre-school children, which would include the subject of appropriate support for families in the home. The timetable for its issue is linked to the parliamentary timetable for introducing legislation on all the proposals in the White Paper "The Law on Child Care and Family Services".
