HC Deb 15 April 1954 vol 526 c136W
43. Mr. Moyle

asked the Minister of Education if she is aware of the reduction in the number of school children taking school meals at Oldbury during the past year; and if she will state the reasons for this reduction.

Mr. Pickthorn

Yes. The reduction in demand is probably due to a number of factors, but my right hon. Friend has no means of knowing how far any particular cause has been responsible.
