HC Deb 04 November 1948 vol 457 c103W
83. Mr. E. Evans

asked the Minister of Education how many children in the administrative county of East Suffolk receive free meals; and on what basis discrimination is made between those who pay for school meals and those who do not.

Mr. Tomlinson

The number in June this year was 1,478. Local education authorities have power to remit the charge for school meals if, in their opinion, there is financial hardship.
