§ Mr. Jim Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if the Government will re-introduce free milk at school for children in deprived communities. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
The law requires those Local Education Authorities and grant-maintained schools that provide milk to make this available, without charge, to pupils whose parents receive income support or income based job-seekers allowance. The Government have no plans to extend this eligibility or to make the serving of free milk compulsory.
