To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment he has made for the implications of his policy of the Spending Review on funding school breakfast provision beyond March 2021.
Answered by Vicky Ford
The department is considering how to encourage and support schools to ensure that children continue to benefit from school breakfasts beyond March 2021. We are developing our thinking in this area. The department is engaging with the breakfast food market, following the release of a Public Information Notice in October 2020.
