asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many places in nursery classes are available in 1975 within the Oldham metropolitan district; and how many he expects to be available in 1976.
In September 1974 the metropolitan district of Oldham had six nursery classes providing 180 full-time equivalent—f.t.e.—places and three nursery schools providing a further 140 f.t.e. places. It is for the local education authority to decide which individual projects should be started within its allocations for 1974–75 and 1975–76. It is not possible to say exactly how many places these will yield.
