If things are not bad enough, for those being furloughed the Government plans to axe free school meals for disadvantaged students during the May and summer holidays.

For many students in Bromsgrove it’s the difference as to whether they eat or not. To take such action at holiday time would be to take away free school meals from 1.3 million children eligible for free school meals and abandon them.

Bromsgrove Labour are asking the Leader of Bromsgrove Council to support a school girl’s call for the government to dump plans to axe free school meals for disadvantaged students during the summer and May holidays, it has so far won the backing of over 15,000 people.

It is very important that Bromsgrove Council Leader states clearly her opposition to such plans and makes our local MP aware of our concerns.
