HC Deb 17 July 1946 vol 425 cc235-6W
173. Mr. Byers

asked the Minister of Education what arrangements have been made for providing facilities to meet the increased demands for school dinners as a result of bread rationing, which will make it difficult for schoolchildren to be supplied by their parents with sandwich lunches.

Mr. Hardman

The school meals programme has high priority and no effort will be spared to accelerate the provision of facilities. Local education authorities will, I feel sure, do all they can to meet any increased demands without impairing the quality of the service.
