§ 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.
