HC Deb 28 July 1982 vol 28 c568W
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.
