Hull heads 'have helped cut school dinner prices'
A senior councillor says head teachers have helped reduce the price of school meals in Hull.
Education portfolio holder Councillor Helene O'Mullane said heads had worked with council officials to implement a price cut to £1 per meal earlier this year to match an election pledge by the ruling Labour group.
"The head teachers are very supportive of what we are trying to do with the price of school meals," she said.
She spoke out after former council leader Councillor Colin Inglis claimed in a full council meeting that heads had blocked a further move by the Labour group to reduce meal prices to 60p.
In a story earlier this week, the Mail incorrectly stated head teachers had not supported the move to reduce prices to £1.
