HC Deb 26 March 1979 vol 965 c57W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list those local education authorities which do not supply free milk to primary pupils aged 8 to 11 years, together with an estimate of the savings thereby achieved, bearing in mind the share of such costs borne by the EEC.

Mr. McElhone

None at present, but I understand that the Borders regional council has decided to discontinue the provision of discretionary milk in primary schools from 31 March. I estimate the net saving to the region at about £11,000 in a full year.
