HC Deb 29 February 1972 vol 832 c92W
Mr. St. John-Stevas

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will issue further guidance to local authorities as to the provision of free school milk for pupils in the 7 years to II years age group under the Local Government (Financial Provisions) Act, 1963.

Mr. Graham Page

No. Decisions about the limited expenditure that can be incurred under Section 6 of that Act in the interests of an area or its inhabitants are a matter for the local authorities.
