HC Deb 05 December 1927 vol 211 cc996-7W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, according to advices which have reached him, special efforts will be needed this winter in feeding children at school; and whether he has issued any Circular on the subject to local authorities?


No, Sir; generally speaking, the returns which are now being received from local authorities show the usual seasonal increase in the number of children provided with meals. The authorities appear to be watching the situation in their areas closely, and there does not seem to be any need to issue a Circular.
