HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 c64W
Mr. Houghton

asked the Minister of Education what conclusions he has reached regarding the temporary transfer to local education authorities of the provision of equipment for the schools meals service; and how far it is proposed to return this work to the specialist technical staff in his Department when the present experimental arrangements expire in April.

Mr. Vosper

The arrangements whereby local education authorities themselves purchase equipment for the school meals service are working well and I do not propose to make any changes.
