Free School mealsWhat would you do with £600million?

That's the question both Nick Clegg and David Cameron have been wrestling with over recent weeks.

As you know, Nick Clegg decided to spend £600million on delivering free school meals for 5-7year olds. Studies have shown that this will help children from all backgrounds do better at school and get on in life. It has been warmly welcomed by the Children's Society and parents.

David Cameron decided to spend £600million on a tax break that will give some (not all) married couples up to £200 a year.

Sign this petition to tell David Cameron he's got his priorities wrong.

As the Liberal Democrats continue to repair the damage Labour did to the economy and deliver growth, the question of what to do with the proceeds of growth come to the fore more often.

That's why it's so important to have the Liberal Democrats in Government delivering a stronger economy and a fairer society enabling every person to get on in life.
