asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many maintained nursery schools there are in each local educational authority in Wales; how many children attend such schools; and what percentage this is of all children in Wales in this age group.
In January 1982, the latest date for which information is available, the number of full-time and part-time pupils attending maintained nursery schools in Wales was 4,120, representing a little over 6 per cent. of the 3 and 4-year-old age group. The numbers of schools and pupils in each local education authority are shown in the following table:
