In the dispute over cuts in school milk some people are moving the schools a step further in the takeover of responsibility. Often the argument has been that the home has lost its commanding grip, so school backed by state should step in and help the child.

Now with the Government cutting the milk supply, the school is seen as standing alone in the child's defence, and one suggestion is that this defence will be ensured by the banning of less helpful items from the school tuckshop.

In such a situation, do we envisage the local authority supporting the school in preventing children from going out at interval or lunchbreak to buy the harmful goodies from a local shop? But meantime profits from the tuckshop might suffer.
