Parliamentary activity
Parliament was in recess during August. We have secured two meetings for 7th September once the House of Commons returns:

  • Sharon Hodgson MP, Chair of the School Food APPG
  • The office of Rishi Sunak MP, Member of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee

We are currently seeking to re-arrange three meetings for after the summer Parliamentary recess, following the political disruption resulting from the EU referendum outcome and the subsequent Labour and Conservative leadership elections:

  • Diana Johnson MP, Vice Chair of the School Food APPG
  • Andrew Gywnne MP, former Shadow Public Health Minister
  • Lord Lexden, peer with interest in school milk
We are currently awaiting responses to four written questions in the House of Commons, which will be published in September. Two were tabled by Conservative MP Simon Hoare on the Eatwell Guide, and one each by Labour MP Julie Elliot and SNP MP Martyn Day on the European School Milk Scheme.
