Ruth Kelly on School Dinners

Ruth Kelly is on the radio saying that 'Parents, not Government, are responsible for bringing up their children.' Fair enough... however... Parents are not directly responsible for feeding their children a meal costing 37p whilst the children are in school.

Nor are they directly responsible for putting vending machines in state schools.

Feedmebetter has a petition to sign.

... and why is it in just this issue that Government prefer to let parents get on with things?
