Update on the European School Milk Scheme
Last month we reported that the Council of Ministers has approved the proposal to merge the European School Milk Scheme with the European Fruit and Vegetables Scheme, with the UK pledging to continue to participate in the revised scheme.

With the strategy due to be implemented by Autumn 2017, Defra is likely to begin significant work following the EU Referendum on 23rd June. Labour MP Ian Austin tabled a parliamentary question during May on payments relating to EU School Milk Scheme the in each region and constituent part of the UK since 2005. We are currently seeking to set up a meeting with Mr Austin, who is the vice chair of the Fit and Healthy Children APPG.
