HC Deb 25 August 1914 vol 66 c30

I beg to move, "That leave be given to introduce a Bill to remove doubts as to the interpretation of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1908, in regard to the Provision of Meals for school children."

The question in doubt is as to whether it is permissible to give meals to children on days when they are not attending school. Some questions have been raised as to whether this can be done under the Act, and the object of the Bill is to remove all doubt on the point.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill ordered to be brought in by the Lord Advocate and Mr. McKinnon Wood. Presented accordingly and read the first time; to be read a second time To-morrow and to be printed. [Bill 389.]
