HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 c1312W
Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many children in 1936–37 and 1937–38 received free meals under Section 6 of the Education Act, 1908; how many meals were given; how many local education authorities give free meals; and how many authorities give meals only on days when the school meets and on schooldays and holidays, respectively?

Mr. Colville

The returns furnished by education authorities do not include all the information asked for in the question, but I am making further inquiries and will communicate the results to the hon. Member.
