HC Deb 02 July 1925 vol 185 c2780
22. Mr. BRIANT

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he will make it obligatory for local education authorities, when reconstructing or building schools, to provide suitable places where children who live too far away to go home for their mid-day meal can eat their dinners, and also facilities for heating the food the children bring?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Lord Eustace Percy)

The Board have brought the question of the mid-day meal to the notice of local authorities in a recent circular, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
