Drop-in event

We have secured sponsorship from former shadow farming minister Mary Glindon MP for a drop-in event in 28th October. The meeting which will focus on the need to secure a replacement for the EU school milk scheme.

In preparation for this:

We will be sending tailored invites to MPs with dairy constituencies, MPs with high levels of deprivation in their constituencies, and general invites to all MPs and peers.
We have updated our statistics on childhood obesity and dental health to support the event.
