§ Sir Victor Goodhew
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list those local education authorities which supply free meals to teachers; and if he will estimate the total cost involved.
§ Dr. Boyson
Teachers undertaking mid-day supervision are entitled, as part of their conditions of service, to receive a free meal. The October 1981 census of school meals showed that all local education authorities in England were making such provision for some teachers at an estimated annual cost of about £28 million.
