To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children aged between five and 11 were receiving school milk in the latest period for which figures are available, broken down by authority. (186754)

The Department for Children, Schools and Families does not collect this information. However, the Rural Payments Agency has advised that in the period 1 September 2006 to 31 August 2007 subsidy on 39,524.364 kilolitres was paid. This figure divided by the maximum entitlement per pupil (250ml) and then divided by 190 school days (average) equals an average of just over 832,000 pupils per day.
