HC Deb 29 October 2002 vol 391 c724W
Mr. Jim Cunningham

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many primary schools provide school milk; and what proposals she has to reintroduce it in all schools. [77009]

Mr. Stephen Twigg

My Department does not collect statistics on the provision of school milk. We do not have any plans to reintroduce free school milk, but the nutritional standards for school lunches, brought in April 2001, strongly recommend that drinking milk is available as an option every day.
