Question S3W-40456

To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S3W-39218 by Adam Ingram on 16 February 2011, what decisions were reached following the consideration of the short-life working group on school meal and clothing grant provision in the context of the draft budget for 2011-12.

Under the relevant legislation, the responsibility for the provision of free school meals and school clothing grants rests with the education authorities. The decision was taken to publish the short-life working group’s report on 24 January 2011 to allow them to take its recommendations into account when preparing their budgets for 2011-12. In making decisions about free school meals and school clothing grants, we would encourage education authorities to prioritise resources to those most in need.
