HC Deb 17 December 1985 vol 89 c113W
16. Mr. Meadowcroft

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he is taking to seek to improve the nutritional content of school meals.

Mr. Chris Patten

The nutritional content of the school meals which they are responsible for providing is a matter for the individual local education authorities. An authority's school meals organiser can get advice from a wide range of authoritative sources. I believe they are well aware of the importance of the nutritional factor.
