    Free school meals for infants in England

    From September 2014 all infant school pupils, including 7,495 in Merton, will benefit from a free hot and healthy meal at lunchtime.

    Last week Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced that every child in infant school in England will receive a free school lunch.

    Statement by Simon Hughes MP - and Shas wholly endorses:

    "On Sunday at the Liberal Democrat conference the party debated our latest policy paper on the environment and the economy. The paper included a range of cutting-edge and innovative environmental policies designed to kick-start green growth and green job creation. In the paper was a section on nuclear power and whether we should maintain our existing policy of not creating a new generation of nuclear power stations; or whether we should consider developing new power stations subject to the safe removal of nuclear waste and there being no public subsidy. The party voted for the second of these. I profoundly disagree with the use of nuclear power as part of our energy mix - and have done all my life. Like many Liberal Democrats and others my opposition to nuclear power will continue. And my determination that not a penny of public money will be used to finance new UK nuclear power stations is now stronger than ever. I believe we must focus our attention on new green technologies that can help save our planet and provide new jobs for people in my constituency and around the country."

    Shas in the Dragon's Den with Merton Challenge Network

    Shas spent an inspiring afternoon in August being a 'dragon' for the Merton Challenge Network - an organisation that challenges 15-16 year olds to put their heart and soul into stuff they've never done before.

    Each group presented their plan for a worthwhile community project/issue, working out how they would raise awareness of it in the wider community. This weekend (21-22 Sep) you'll have seen them if you were out and about in Merton. Projects ranged from raising awareness of crime, to mental health issues amongst the young to the benefit volunteering for your local community can bring.

  • Nick Clegg and school dinners (Dave Radcliffe)
    Article: Sep 18, 2013

    Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg used his speech to Liberal Democrat conference to announce that all pupils at infant schools in England are to get free school lunches from September 2014, with equivalent funding for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    In addition, disadvantaged students at sixth form colleges and further education colleges in England will also be eligible for free school meals also from next September. Money is also being provided for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, but as education is a devolved issue, it will be up to those running schools there to decide whether to spend the money on free lunches.

  • Save Wimbledon library
    Article: Aug 1, 2013

    Thanks to you the future of Wimbledon library has been safeguarded.

    A strong campaign led by Craig Nicol has seen off the threat that the inclusion of the library in the Sites and Policies Plan would have brought.

    It was always clear that Labour did not have a leg to stand on when they said they merely wanted to 'retain and improve the library'. The question then was why include it in the Sites and Policies Plan with a proposed Change of Use - which would have enabled commercial developers to circle the property?

    Letter for publication on closure of Wimbledon Guild Day Centre

    Clients and their carers at the Wimbledon Guild Day Centre have been led through a seesaw of emotions by the proposed changes.

    They were initially heartened by promises made to individual clients that the service will not close and that their needs would be looked after. However this reassurance was soon shattered by the evidence of their own eyes as the physical changes were progressed.

    A message from Norman Lamb MP, Minister of State for Care and Support

    This week has been a particularly important one for the NHS. During the past couple of days, we have announced a consultation on proposals to ensure proper accountability for those at the top in organisations providing health and care services to make sure that tragedies like those at Winterbourne View and Morecambe Bay Hospitals never happen again; we have also announced today the consultation on updating the NHS Mandate (the official document which lays out the priorities for our NHS and care system); and finally, today the NHS also celebrates its 65th Birthday! I wanted to write to you separately from my regular constituency newsletters to let you about each of these.
