Mrs. Maria Miller: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many two- year-olds he expects to have participated in free early years pre-school entitlement by 2016. 
Dawn Primarolo [holding answer 24 February 2010]: By the end of March 2010 it is expected some 20,000 two-year-olds from the most disadvantaged backgrounds will have access to a free early learning and child care place each year.
Dawn Primarolo: Table 1 shows the number of part-time equivalent places filled by three and four-year-olds in Northamptonshire local authority in 1997, 2001, 2005 and 2009. Data for 2010 are not yet available and will be published in the summer, so 2009 has been provided instead.
Part-time equivalent places are derived by counting children taking up 12 and a half hours per week as one place, 10 hours per week as 0.8 places, seven and a half hours per week as 0.6 places, five hours per week as 0.4 places and two and a half hours per week as 0.2 places.
