§ Mr. Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many additional nursery school places are included in the current proposals of the Cheshire County Council sanctioned by his Department; and how many of these places are to be provided in the Congleton and Macclesfield districts.
§ Mr. Armstrong
Cheshire County Council has been given allocations of £772,045 for nursery education building starts in 1974–75 and £394,363 for starts in 1975–76. It is for local education authorities to decide which individual projects should be started within their allocations, and the number of resultant places will vary with the costs of provision.
