Great start to 2015 for pupils set to receive free school meals


Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has said that the new year has set off to a great start for the 135,000 primary 1 to primary 3 pupils set to benefit from the roll-out of free school meals in Scotland from Monday 5th January.

 

Mr Rennie said: "The new year will set off to a great start for the 135,000 P1-P3 pupils who will benefit from a healthy and nourishing free school meal each and every day of the school week.

"This move, delivered as a result of Liberal Democrats in the UK Government, will put more money back in parents pockets and give kids a healthy lunch in the social environment of the school canteen. I want every child who is entitled to this support to receive it which is why the Scottish Government must work with local councils to ensure all schools meet demand."
