HC Deb 20 November 1979 vol 974 cc109-10W
Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what are the current subsidies on (a) school meals, (b) school transport, and (c) school milk in Cambridgeshire.

Mr. Macfarlane

The net cost to public funds of these services in 1978–79 was £3.7 million, £1.9 million and £0.1 million respectively. In total, these subsidies represent more than 8 per cent. of the authority's expenditure on the education service.
