§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
In the Board's Estimates for 1932, allowance is made for increased expenditure by local education authorities on the provision of meals to the extent of £20,000, as shown on page 12 of the Estimates Memorandum [Cmd. 4031]. It is not possible to forecast the actual expenditure to be incurred on this service, but my right hon. Friend is satisfied that, so far as can at present be ascertained, the estimate is adequate for any probable requirements.
