My right hon. Friend is informed by the education authority that the number is 347.

Mr. Davidson

Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that this is an increase over the previous year of necessitous children receiving free meals, and will anything be done on behalf of Glasgow, in conjunction with the Minister of Labour, to have this question dealt with in the immediate future?

I will certainly convey the hon. Member's remarks to my right hon. Friend.

Yes, Sir. The Secretary of State for Scotland is Minister in Attendance on His Majesty the King in Scotland, and the Under-Secretary, who is Hereditary Standard Bearer of Scotland, is also there. [An HON. MEMBER: "Where is the Scottish Whip?"] The Scottish Whip is also there.
