To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what plans he has for the disbandment of the milk voucher system for school children. [102400]

I have been asked to reply.There are no plans to end the supply of free milk to children in nursery or day care under the welfare food scheme. The consultation document, "Healthy Start", included a proposal to broaden the nutritional scope of the scheme by offering children in nursery or day care a choice of milk or fruit.The nursery element of the scheme does not involve the use of vouchers.
