    "SNP pledges free breakfast and lunch for primary pupils all year round

    Scotland’s education secretary, John Swinney, vows to dramatically extend free school meals policy

    Scotland could become the first UK nation to provide free breakfasts and lunches to every primary school child all year round, after the SNP pledged to do so if re-elected next May.

    Speaking at the party’s conference, the Scottish education secretary, John Swinney, made the policy commitment as he claimed that the UK chancellor Rishi Sunak’s “second wave of austerity” would unleash a “tsunami of child poverty” in Scotland.

    Scotland currently provides free lunches for children in years one to three, while eligibility for breakfasts varies depending on individual councils."

    Looks like a vote winner, SNP is unstoppable!

    If the lunch is free, then you are the lunch...

    If the lunch is free, English taxpayers paid for it.

    The idea is to get everyone in Scotland's buy in into the welfare state plus it's easier for the schools to implement.
