Sharon Hodgson MP, Labour’s Shadow Children’s Minister, commenting on research by the Local Authority Caterers Association and Parent Pay showing that parents believe school meals should apply to academies, said:  

"This just shows Michael Gove is totally out of touch with the views of parents.  

"They understand that school meals should be healthy and nutritious whatever type of school you attend. But Michael Gove has exempted over a million children from healthy meals. 

"Labour would change that, so that the rules developed with Jamie Oliver would apply to every school in England."
