Data relating to level of subsidy on school meals made by local education authorities are not collected centrally. The charges made for fixed-price school meals in LEAs in England are included in the Department's annual report on the school meals census, which is available in the Library of the House.

Matters relating to Wales are for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
