HC Deb 29 June 1967 vol 749 cc122-3W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will ensure that families who will benefit from increased social security will not he disadvantaged in means-tested applications for school meals, maintenance grants or other assistance.

Mr. Crosland

I intend to amend the national scale for the remission of the charge for the school meal so that it continues to be based on the level of supplementary benefit payments. Other educational grants to families with children at school are at the discretion of local education authorities.
