Cuts Watch #221: Free fruit for children in Glasgow?

31 Aug 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Free fruit for children in Glasgow’s primary schools is reportedly at risk of being cut. The cut would apparently save the council £1.2 million annually – a small part of the £115 million that Glasgow reportedly needs to cut over the next two years. Breakfast clubs, fitness initiatives and playschemes are also at risk and it has been widely reported that teachers across Scotland may face longer working hours in an attempt to prevent wider cuts to education services.
