There are chances that due to the fault of others, under-five children have to suffer. It has been come into notice that the government has been thinking to cut funds being given to schools for free milk scheme for under-five children.
The government found some loopholes in the scheme, and conducted an investigation. The investigation found that middle men who supply milk from the market to schools are the main culprits. They are found to be charging double price for the milk, which means that they are charging 92p for the milk, which can be easily bought from the market for 50p.
"We are disappointed that some milk providers are abusing the system. While we don't condone profiteering, we are far from convinced that a single provider is the answer", said Neil Leitch, of the Pre-School Learning Alliance.
The Department of Health said that the free-milk scheme would not be taken back, and the review will ensure that the scheme is secured and children get milk. Consumer group activists were of the view that it is not happening for the first time that the government is taking back the scheme.
Last time also, they did the same, and put an end to the scheme, which provided free milk to under-seven children. If same thing happens for under-five children then poor children will be the sufferers.
