From SNP Media today:
The SNP has called on the UK government to match Scottish Government efforts to tackle child hunger and poverty, by expanding free school meals and introducing a UK-wide Child payment.
The calls come after videos of a Lancashire based dinner lady detailing her distress at having to deny children a school meal captured significant attention on social media.
In Scotland all children from P1-P5 are entitled to free school meals, as well as all children from households in receipt of Universal Credit.
Families also benefit from the, recently doubled, Scottish Child Payment of £20 a week, which also provides four £130 bridging payments to families over school holidays.
