HC Deb 15 January 1974 vol 867 c26W
Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, as a large number of women in industry will now have to work at weekends, if she will advocate the opening of schools on Saturdays for meals and recreation.

Mr. Raison

Where local education authorities are satisfied that there is a need sufficient to justify the extra costs involved, they have the necessary power to provide meals and recreational activities at schools on Saturdays.
