HC Deb 02 February 1979 vol 961 cc590-1W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish in the Official Report a table which shows (a) the weekly cost of school meals in each year since 1964, (b) expresses this cost at September 1977 prices and (c) expresses this cost as a percentage of the actual cost of providing school meals.

Miss Margaret Jackson

The information in respect of maintained schools in England and Wales is as follows:

if she will make provision for financial assistance to be provided to the Beechwood college to enable the education and training of employee representatives in industry, as recommended in the White Paper on industrial democracy.

Mr. Oakes

The provision of education and training for employee representatives envisaged in the White Paper on industrial democracy is still the subject of consultation and discussion, and it would not yet be appropriate to commit funds to particular developments.
