The ruling political elite at County Hall, in desperation, are seeking yet another private catering company to provide the hot school meal service in primary schools, maintain their school kitchens, and recruit dinner staff - “to meet statutory regulations” (‘Dear reader...’, Editorial, June 3 / ‘£12.7m school meals contract up for grabs’, Letters, June 3).
The ruling political elite at County Hall, in 1999, destroyed the hot school meal service in primary schools, ripped out their school kitchens, and got rid of their long-serving dinner staff - “to save money”.
Not only did Jesus weep.
