HC Deb 07 July 1938 vol 338 cc578-9
51. Mr. G. Griffiths

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he will bring up to date the information in regard to the period during which school meals are provided?

Mr. Lindsay

Complete information in respect of the year ended 31st March, 1938, will not be available until the autumn. The latest information, in respect of the year ended 31st March, 1937, was given in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Normanton (Mr. T. Smith) on 9th November last, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member.

Mr. Griffiths

Does not the Minister agree that, if there is not so much money spent on buildings, they will have more to spend on feeding the youngsters?
