HC Deb 22 February 2000 vol 344 c889W
Mr. Paul Marsden

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will list for each local education authority the average price of school meals in the last year for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. [110702]

Jacqui Smith

This information is not collected centrally. Under education legislation, it is up to local education authorities, and schools with delegated budgets for school meals, to decide what price to charge.
