HC Deb 24 June 1980 vol 987 cc156-7W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, further to the reply, Official Report, 13 June, column 313, to the hon. Member for Rother Valley, (Mr. Hardy) whether any of the authorities there have announced their intention of charging higher prices for school meals; and, in each case, what price they have announced.

Mr. Mark Carlisle

Firm information about announced intentions is not available to the Department. Some local education authorities which had provi- sionally decided to charge more in September are understood to be reconsidering their decisions.
