Grahame Morris – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Education

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Grahame Morris on 2015-10-09.

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many schools have renovated, replaced or installed new kitchen equipment in order to comply with the universal infant free school meals programme.

Mr Sam Gyimah

The Government has provided significant support for schools to improve kitchen and dining room facilities for their infant pupils. We have allocated £184.5 million capital funding in total specifically for this purpose, and an additional £32.5 million UIFSM funding to support small schools in improving their infant meal provision, which can be used to purchase equipment or fund minor capital works.
