Theresa May warned to avoid ‘milk snatcher’ label post-Brexit

Theresa May has been warned to avoid being labelled a “milk snatcher” by providing a cast-iron guarantee that the UK will replace an EU milk subsidies scheme for school children.

The EU scheme, which the UK renewed its commitment to last year, will provide over €4m worth of milk subsides to children from the start of the school year in September.

The scheme also acts to fund dedicated education programmes to teach pupils about the importance of good nutrition and lessons on how food is produced.
