HC Deb 31 March 1908 vol 187 cc321-2

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he will state the number of children who were reported by the Children's Care Committees as necessitous, and the number fed, in the week ending 6th March, in London County Council schools; and whether he can also state the number of dinnerless school children in the schools of Berlin.


I understood from a newspaper report that the number of schools reported by the Sub Committee on underfed children has having necessitous children during the week ended 6th March, was 461, the number of children being 46,123. The number of children fed in the 461 schools was 45,142. I have no information as to the last paragraph.
