HC Deb 04 February 1977 vol 925 cc472-3W
Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, in respect of all towns in non-Metropolitan counties with a population of more than 250,000, she will publish information regarding the number of planned school meals and the number actually served, during the recent Christmas holiday break, in secondary or high schools.

Miss Margaret Jackson

This information is not available and could not be obtained without a special inquiry. During 1975–76, 27 local education authorities provided 1,015,883 meals for pupils during school holidays or on Saturdays.
