Local authorities would be keen to expand nursery education if the government would allow them to spend the money, Shadow education secretary Ann Taylor told Radio Four's Today programme this morning.

She welcomed Prime Minister, John Major's comments, made in an interview with the Daily Telegraph this morning, that his goal was to see nursery education for all. But the government had never taken any steps towards this, Ann Taylor said.

The Prime Minister's statement was at odds with education secretary, John Patten's recent response to a call for nursery education, the programme commented. Mr Patten had ruled it out in the short term as there was no money available for it.
