Mr. Cyril Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the total school population of the parliamentary constituency of Ormskirk; and what is the total daily average number of free school meals supplied to those children.

Miss Margaret Jackson

These figures are not collected by my Department. On a day in January 1978, the number of pupils in attendance at maintained schools in the area of the Lancashire education authority was 229,106 of whom 36,126 received free school meals.
