Children queuing for school dinner, July 1980. 'She's usually a jolly woman with kids of her own and a dedicated interest in seeing that their little tummies are full. She is paid around one pound thirty-six an hour for sweating it out in hot, steamy kitchens. And in September your friendly neighbourhood dinner lady (and thousands like her) will probably be out of work - but not on the dole; for she is officially clased as a temporary, part-time worker. And that rules out State benefits and redundancy pay.'
