HC Deb 16 March 1950 vol 472 cc70-1W
76. Mr. S. O. Davies

asked the Minister of Education what were the numbers of school meals supplied during the weeks ended 2nd December, 1949, and 3rd February, 1950, respectively, in the schools under the authority of the Merthyr Tydfil Education Committee.

Mr. Tomlinson

The nearest available figures are returns of the number of children having dinner on single days in October and February. They are: October, 6,125; and February, 4,536, but on the latter day there were nearly 900 fewer children in school.
