Mr. John D. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when the Department of Education (Northern Ireland) intends to introduce the nursery vouchers scheme to Northern Ireland; and if he will make a statement. [18476]

No date has been set for the introduction of the pre-school voucher scheme in Northern Ireland. It is the Government's intention to implement the scheme when resources permit.
