Letter: Voucher poser

Sir: So nursery vouchers are to be withdrawn in the autumn. As this government's stated priorities are "education, education and education", is it safe to assume that to coincide with the withdrawal of vouchers a state nursery place will be made available for every four-year-old so that children whose parents could not afford a private nursery place without vouchers will not be deprived? I only ask.
