Government responds to Jamie Oliver's criticism

Following Jamie Oliver's criticism of Education Secretary Michael Gove, a Department for Education spokesperson said the Government was looking at other ways to collect data on the take-up of meals in schools because the previous method had not been effective.

We made the decision to stop the old school meals take- up survey as it was not providing the detailed information we needed.

We are currently assessing more effective methods for this data collection.
