§ Mr. D. Jones
asked the Minister of Health what representations he has received from the National Society of Children Nurseries; and what reply he has given to these representations.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
On 21st October I received a deputation from the National Society of Children Nurseries and others who represented that the provision for children in day nurseries and nursery schools and classes was inadequate, and that a working party should be set up to consider the whole question of day-time care of children under five years of age. I promised to consider the points made, which I am now doing in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Education.
