Even Tory-sponsored YouGov can’t deny that Labour’s new plan to provide free school meals to all primary school pupils is a vote-winner after 52 per cent of people polled by the company supported it.

Here are YouGov’s findings in a handy little tweet; you can click on the link to see the full results:

Even alleged Twitter hermit Jeremy Corbyn spent all day yesterday (April 6) publicising the new policy (I really don’t think he’s as quiet as his critics keep trying to suggest, you know):

Any questions?

A Labour government would extend universal free school meals to all primary school pupils, and charge parents VAT on private school fees to pay for it.

Labour says the extension of free school meals to juniors would cost between £700 and £900 million a year and will improve pupil attainment and health.

Universal infant free school meals, introduced by the coalition government in 2014, already costs the taxpayer more than £600 million a year, but Labour claims it can raise £1.5 billion by charging VAT on tuition fees charged by independent schools.
