NFUS backs free school milk

THE National Farmers Union of Scotland is backing a campaign to re-instate free school milk, reports The Herald.

The union wants Agriculture Minister Nick Brown to take advantage of European Union (EU) funds which could provide up to 21ppl for such a scheme.

The newspaper reports claims that the government has taken up less than 20% of available EU grant aid for milk to schools.
