HC Deb 27 April 1988 vol 132 c189W
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.
