HC Deb 22 March 1951 vol 485 c2557
11. Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Education how many schools under the control of the Cornwall Education Committee lack canteen facilities; and how many scholars attend these schools.

Mr. Hardman

Sixty-eight schools or departments, attended by 4,467 pupils.

Mr. Hayman

Will my hon. Friend do what he can to hasten the provision of canteens in these schools?

Mr. Hardman

I certainly will, though I must point out that there have been rather exceptional difficulties in this area, of which I know my hon. Friend is aware.
