HC Deb 30 January 1996 vol 270 c729W
Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how the loss of income to local authorities as a result of parents choosing non-local authority provision for the nursery voucher scheme will be calculated; and at what stage in the year a local authority will know how its funding has been affected. [11619]

Mr. Raymond S. Robertson

When an authority learns how many vouchers parents have presented at its schools, it wil be able to calculate the resulting income.
