Motion text

That this House urges the Government to reconsider its decision to cancel a planned extension to the universal free schools meals pilot scheme; totally deplores the fact that the extension of free school meals to more low income families due to start this September has been scrapped; and asks the Government to assist with the provision of more free school meals recognising the vital contribution they make in encouraging sound eating habits in early childhood, developing social skills, tackling childhood obesity, supporting local businesses through local procurement, creating jobs and helping to end child poverty.
