HC Deb 16 June 1992 vol 209 c481W
Ms. Coffey

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make money available to local authorities so that schools can provide pre-school and after-school care for children of working parents.

Mr. Yeo

It is inappropriate to use public funds to help all parents pay for day care services for their children. Public funds should be targeted on children in need.
