HC Deb 07 November 1911 vol 30 cc1471-2

asked the President of the Board of Education how many local education authorities administer the Provision of Meals Act through care committees as in London; how many have simply canteen committees; and how many refer cases for remedial treatment to local guilds of help or other outside institutions?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. J. A. Pease)

I have no information to enable me to give an exact answer to the first and third parts of the question. The answer to the second part of the question is 103, but, as the hon. Member is no doubt aware, the canteen committees vary somewhat widely in constitution.
