More schools put beef on the menu

MORE local authorities reinstated beef to school menus during June than in any other month in more than a year, says the Meat and Livestock Commission.

The MLC claims that the success, with five authorities switching back to beef last month, is a result of co-operation between MPs and local councillors, and work done by former farm minister Jack Cunninghams private secretary John Home Robertson. &#42
