§ Mr. Goodlad
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what guidance her Department has issued to local education authorities on the subject of payment for meals at school by teachers.
§ Miss Margaret Jackson
Circular 16/68 of 15th August 1968 and Circular 3/78 of 20th January 1978 make it clear that teachers who undertake the oversight of pupils during the midday break, whether in the dining hall or elsewhere, should be entitled to receive a free school dinner. Other teachers who wish to have a school dinner are expected to pay.
