My right hon. Friend is informed by the education authority that the number is 347.

Mr. Davidson:

Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that this is an increase over the previous year of necessitous children receiving free meals, and will anything be done on behalf of Glasgow, in conjunction with the Minister of Labour, to have this question dealt with in the immediate future?
