HC Deb 30 June 1971 vol 820 c145W
Dr. Summerskill

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science on what grounds she is satisfied that children who stopped taking school meals owing to the rise in price are now having satisfactory meals elsewhere; and if she will make a statement.

Mrs. Thatcher

Mid-day meals for children who do not take the school dinner are a matter for their parents. I have no reason to suppose that parents in general do not make satisfactory arrangements to see that their children are properly fed.
