Coalition 'united' on free school meals policy

Nick Clegg has said ministers are at one over plans to give all pupils under seven in England free school meals.

It came after Education Secretary Michael Gove and Lib Dem schools minister David Laws declared they were "not at war", after reports of a rift.

In a joint article in The Times newspaper, they said that plans to bring in free school meals from September had "cross-party support".
