HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 c362W
129. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what malnutrition there is among schoolchildren in Scotland; and whether he will initiate an inquiry to ascertain the latest facts.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Details of the most common indicators of nutrition among schoolchildren are given in Table 3.3 of the Annual Report for 1969 on Health Services in Scotland (Cmnd. 4392). The records of medical examinations undertaken by the school health service ensure that the facts are brought up to date annually.
