Free School Meals - Stage 3 Children and Young People (Scotland) Bill briefing

18 February 2014

In advance of tomorrow's (19 February 2014) stage 3 debate on the Children and Young People (Scotland) Bill, the Scottish Free School Meals Campaign produced a briefing for MSPs.

The Scottish Free School Meals Campaign is urging MSPs to accept amendments, which would allow the Scottish Government to give legislative effect to its policy commitment to provide universal free school lunches to children in P1-P3.

These amendments are supported by the following organisations as members of the Scottish Free School Meals Campaign:

  • Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS)
  • Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) in Scotland
  • STUC
  • The Poverty Alliance
  • UNISON
  • Children 1st
  • Save the Children
  • Shelter Scotland
  • One Parent Families in Scotland (OPFS)
  • Children in Scotland
  • The Church and Society Council of the Church of Scotland
