HC Deb 31 October 1975 vol 898 c625W
Mr. Raphael Tuck

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what effect the proposed cuts in education expenditure are likely to have on school meals.

Mr. Mulley

Local education authorities will continue to have a statutory duty to provide school dinners for all pupils who wish to take them. There is no reason why the extent of their provision or the nutritional standard of the meal should be affected.
