Money for school dinners in England - what's happening with Scotland?

Does anyone know how much we spend now on school dinners in primary schools in Scotland and how much will be spent after the Jamie Oliver programme?

On the news I've only seen England mentioned.

Ssd,
Scotland has already invested more in School meals - an extra £65m or so. Jamie Oliver was apparently quite impressed.
Am crap at links but there's something on the Scottish Exec's website:

Maybe this will help our kids get away from the Irn Bru/Deep fried Mars bar typecast?

Scotland has already put money into school dinners, £68 million I think. And they've re-introduced minimum nutritional standards. Miles ahead of down South.

Most areas are already spending at least that in Scoltand. See the Scotsman article .

The Herland has an article last week - but it makes you pay to see archived stuff so I can't give you a link. From memory, Glasgow spent 70p/£1 per head for primary school and 75p for seocndary school. There was a big variation between areas (and sometimes between primary and secondary) - I think SOuth Ayrshire was really stingy.
