HC Deb 21 January 1981 vol 997 c155W
Mr. Pendry

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he is taking to monitor the health, dental health and nutrition of children who are no longer provided with school meals.

Dr. Boyson

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services intends in due course to arrange for the nutritional effects of school meals arrangements in selected areas to be monitored. There are no plans to include monitoring of dental health in the study.
