HC Deb 23 April 1951 vol 487 cc26-7W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Education if he will make a comprehensive statement on the cost of school meals in town and rural areas respectively, showing how this sum is made up; and what is the proportion due to actual cost of foodstuffs, for wages and supervision, and for transport, respectively.

Mr. Tomlinson

The nearest available figures to those asked for are as follow:

sioner, in association with the Rulers of the States. The position is broadly similar in Brunei and Zanzibar.

In this connection, I would draw the attention of the hon. Member to my statement on the subject of powers of deportation during the debate on the adjournment of 8th March.

Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress he has made in his consultations with colonial Governors over the power of deportation.

Mr. J. Griffiths

There are in the Colonial Dependencies between 30 and 40 different legal systems governing the question of deportation, and complex legal political and administrative issues are involved. For this reason consultation with colonial Governors is bound to take a certain time, but I shall make a statement as soon as I am in a position to do so.
