HC Deb 21 February 1907 vol 169 c1041
MR. THORNE (West Ham, S.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the Manchester Education Committee is utilising the police stations as depots for the supply of meals to school children under the Education (Provision of Meals) Act, 1906; and whether the police stations would be considered as canteens within the meaning of the Act.


I have no information on the matter referred to in the Question, nor would it, so far as I am aware, come within the province of the Board of Education. The Act only speaks of canteen committees, not of canteens.
