So, a party-political Manifesto states it will end free school dinners for all primary-aged children, except those who qualify for a means-tested free dinner (“May’s school meals plan ‘to hit 900,000 poor children'”, The Observer, Sunday, May 21) .

If the political party in question is elected after June 8, are we to expect a repeat of a decision made 18 years ago [1999], here in West Sussex, in which the ruling political elite axed hot school meals to 60,000 primary-aged children, dismantled 242 school kitchens and made 550 dinner ladies redundant?
