To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which baseline year he has selected by which to judge the School Food Trust's performance against its targets of increasing school meal uptake by four percentage points by March 2008 and 10 percentage points by autumn 2009; and how many school meals were consumed in that year.

The School Food Trust's performance will be judged against the baseline information on school meals take-up set out in the report on the School Food Trust's first annual survey of take-up of school meals in England for the 2005/06 year. The School Food Trust's survey collected information on the percentage take-up of school meals in primary and secondary schools rather than on the number of school meals that were consumed. The Department did not collect information on the number of school meals that were consumed in 2005/06.
