Is the Coalition making a meal of school dinners policy?

Hull North MP Diana Johnson today pressed the Government on whether they will deliver Nick Clegg’s promise of free school meals to all primary school children from September.

The question follows reports that the policy is being watered down, after being launched in a blaze of publicity at the Lib Dem Conference in September 2013.

Speaking in Business Questions in the House of Commons today, Diana Johnson MP asked: “May we have a debate on the Deputy Prime Minister’s national pledge for free hot school meals for infants from September 2014, which of course was pioneered in Hull in 2004 by Labour but axed by the Liberal Democrats? Or is it likely to go the way of all pledges that the Deputy Prime Minister makes?”
