900,000 children lose free school meals

The Conservative manifesto pledge to scrap 'universal' free school lunches could see as many as 900,000 children from low-income families lose their entitlement to claim the midday meal.


When the Liberal Democrats were in government we introduced free school lunches for pupils from reception to Year 2, but Theresa May now plans to scrap them. The changes would cost families an average extra £480 a year for every child.

Along with the proposal to make older people pay for social care costs from the value of their own homes when they die. this shows the nasty party is back.

Margaret Thatcher was known as the milk snatcher, it seems Theresa May will go down as the lunch snatcher.

She is cynically snatching meals away from thousands of children, while the elderly receiving care in their own home will face a 'Personal Death Tax' charged against their home.

The Liberal Democrats will offer a brighter future by extending free school meals to all primary schools. We will stand up to Theresa May's cold, mean-spirited Britain, protecting those that need the most help and fighting for more funding for our schools and hospitals.
