§ 34. Mr. Worthington
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for increasing the provision of nursery education in Scotland; and what percentage of three and four-year-olds he expects to have the opportunity to receive nursery education in 1990, 1995 and 2000.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
The level of provision for nursery education is for education authorities to determine in the light of their assessment of relative priorities. I cannot predict the aggregate effect of their decisions in future years.
