HC Deb 05 July 1926 vol 197 c1625W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the Staffordshire Education Committee are not exercising their powers with respect to the feeding of school children in the mining villages of Penkridge and Huntington; and whether he will inquire into this matter?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answers I gave on the 24th June to the hon. Member for Chester-le-Street (Mr. Lawson). I understand that, as a matter of fact, the Staffordshire Authority are providing meals at Huntington as well as in a number of other districts in their area.
