HC Deb 21 October 1954 vol 531 c200W
63. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Education if he will give instruction for the supply of milk to school children to be put to open competitive tender.

Sir D. Eccles

My Department's Circular 278, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend, asked local education authorities to introduce competitive tendering for the supply of milk to schools under the milk-in-schools scheme not later than 1st April, 1955. Some have done so already.
