HC Deb 28 February 1906 vol 152 c1132

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the Bradford Board of Guardians are making a charge of 3d. each for school meals supplied by them under the Board's Child-feeding Order, and that they are enforcing this charge against parents whose incomes is insufficient to provide ½d. meals for the children who are not in receipt of school meals; whether he is also aware that one parent threatened with a summons for payment of the 3d. each for meals has since buried one of his children that had died by reason of insufficient feeding through poverty; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter.


I have not received any representations as regards this matter, but I will communicate with the guardians with respect to it.
