Therefore in the speech, Joseph announced new grants for day nurseries and playgroups under the umbrella of the Urban Programme, since in May 1972 the government had allocated over £1 million for daycare provision for the under-fives. He announced a capital grant of £9,500 and a recurrent annual grant of £45,000, in order to accelerate the provision of playgroups. He saw them as being both an impressive area for voluntary organisation activity, and also an essential social service. 23 But it was in the second half of the speech that Joseph developed his main theme, noting that the family was under attack, and arguing that family life needed to be strengthened.
The research has drawn on the Joseph papers in the Conservative Party Archive in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, and the Peter Townsend papers at the University of Essex, while the oral interviews have uncovered further private papers, from Nicola Madge, Muriel Brown, Adrian Sinfield, and Harriett Wilson. Newspapers, particularly The Times, have been helpful in tracing the direction taken by the Research Programme, as have been the SSRC Newsletter and journals such as New Society. The book provides the first systematic analysis of the available archival sources, supplemented by oral interviews with civil servants and social scientists.
Compared to the Pre-School Playgroups Association, the executive of the Nursery School Association had fewer mothers of young children, and more nursery school teachers. Joseph said he saw the speech as an opportunity to express his appreciation of the work of the playgroup movement, and also to share some thoughts on what he regarded as intractable problems in society, which bore on the future of family life. While medical provision for children under five was good and improving, less was known about the social and emotional needs of young children.
