HC Deb 30 July 1953 vol 518 c1519
18. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Education how many javelins were obtained for the expenditure of £730 by the Kent Education Committee; and for what purpose they have been used.

Miss Horsbrugh

Three hundred and eighty-two javelins were purchased as part of the physical education equipment of certain secondary schools.

Mr. Dodds

Will the Minister now give an undertaking that she will see that none of the children who are expected to hurl these javelins will be deprived of mid-day school meals because of the lack of money?
