§ 33. Mrs. Doris Fisher
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what guidance has now been given to local authorities regarding the medical opinion necessary for the provision of free school milk to children in junior schools.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
It is my intention, subject to the enactment of the necessary legislation, to issue a circular to local education authorities on the new arrangements for free school milk to be introduced from next September. This will include guidance on administrative aspects of medical certification, but medical opinions will be the responsibility of the school medical officers.
