So the Labour Party should seize on the policy proposal to spend about pounds 900m a year to give nursery education to all who want it and need it ('Labour supports nursery schools', 28 June).
This Association, among others, acclaimed John Major's announcement, just before Christmas, of his ambition 'over time to move to universal nursery education'. He dampened hopes later in the Commons (17 March) when he said: 'We have made it clear as and when resources are available we shall move towards further nursery education, towards universal nursery education.'
Everyone will win, including the Chancellor of the Exchequer and many potential victims of crime, when full nursery provision is in place.
