HC Deb 14 December 1993 vol 234 c557W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Prime Minister if it is Government policy to provide nursery places for all three and four-year-olds whose parents want it.

The Prime Minister

The Government's policy is to promote choice and diversity of educational and other forms of provision for the under-fives, within the resources available. The scale and pattern of provision locally are matters for individual local authorities and other local providers.
