§ On Question, Bill read 1ª, and to be printed.
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (LORD EMMOTT)
My Lords, a week or two ago I was asked by Lord Camperdown why there was to be no Education (Provision of Meals) Bill for Scotland, and I explained at the time that Scotland already appeared to possess these powers. It transpires, however, that there is a small gap in the powers which Scotland possesses. Children can be fed under the Scottish Acts whilst they are actually in attendance at school, but there is some doubt as to whether they can properly be fed on days when the school does not meet. This Bill is to repair that deficiency.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 2ª.—(Lord Emmett.)
§ On Question (Standing Order No. XXXIX having been suspended), Bill read 2ª: Committee negatived: Bill read 3ª, and passed. (No. 264.)
