EU School Milk Scheme and nursery milk subsidies: Liz Twist MP offers her support

07/12/2018


The Alliance was thrilled to meet with MP for Blaydon and new Parliamentary Supporter, Liz Twist MP, on 4th December.  Ms. Twist offered her support to our campaigns to protect nursery milk subsidies and for a domestic replacement to the EU School Milk Scheme.  She offered to raise questions in the House of Commons and said that she would be very happy to meet with suppliers for schools in her constituency.  As a member of the European Statutory Instruments Committee, she promised that she would keep a close eye on any legislation affecting the supply of school milk to children across the UK and showed a particular interest in ensuring that children from deprived backgrounds are able to continue to enjoy milk as a mid-morning snack, quelling hunger, and improving their cognitive health.
