Over the weekend, Labour agreed to back the Lib Dem proposals for free school meals.

After pressure from the party's grass roots at the National Policy Forum, Labour agreed to endorse the policy which was announced by Nick Clegg last year.

Thanks to Lib Dems in Government, the policy will take affect in September and will become one of the most important changes in our education system for a generation.
