§ Mr. Nicholas Winterton
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, in order that private as well as State schools should be able to take advantage of the new EEC subsidy on school milk, he will bring about an early conclusion to the question of abolishing the Government condition that local authorities must make an extra qualifying contribution.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
Private schools are already able to receive the school milk subsidy if their local authorities are willing to contribute a small amount to the cost of the milk. I am considering whether more favourable arrangements could be introduced and hope to make a announcement nantsshortly.
