HC Deb 15 December 1976 vol 922 c1528
The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Mr. Denis Healey)

Besides reductions in school building, to which I have already referred and which will not affect basic needs, the programme for current expenditure on education will be reduced by economies in the administration of school meals, by deferring the operation of Section 9 of the Education Act 1976 dealing with school milk, and by other minor savings, making a total of £20 million in 1977–78 and £30 million in 1978–79.
