#libdemlegacy Free School Meals still under threat

The government have responded to the petition to keep free school meals (as they have to do within 7 days if it reaches 10,000 signatures - at time of publishing it was at 35,548) in a mealy-mouthed (no pun intended) fashion:

It starts:

"The Government is currently conducting a Spending Review across all its programmes. Therefore, every policy across Whitehall is being reviewed as part of this process and no decisions have yet been taken."

You can see the full response here and please do sign if you haven't already (and pass it on) as if it reaches 100,000 signartures, it is considered for parliamentary debate.
