HC Deb 08 February 1995 vol 254 c310W
Ms Jowell

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what representations she has received about the call to restore nutritional standards for school meals; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Robin Squire

In the last two years, the Department has received 12 written representations on the matter. The Government will be drawing up voluntary nutritional guidance for school meals providers as part of the programme to achieve the targets set in "The Health of the Nation" strategy. I hope that this guidance will be published in the summer.
