Deprived of milk

3rd March 1995 at 00:00
The British School, Wooton-under-Edge, Gloucester can count itself lucky it receives a subsidy for selling milk to pupils, (TES, Letters, February 24).

In Cornwall we understand from the European Union that all children are entitled to benefit from subsidised milk prices.

However, primary children here cannot. This is because Cornwall County Council will not process subsidy claims from primary schools, only from secondary schools. The European Union will not deal with claims from organisations smaller than an education authority.

Surely all schoolchildren should be able to profit from this scheme.
