Best Answer

The postwar Labour government instituted a free quarter-pint milk 'ration' for every primary school pupil. This policy continued during the 1951-64 Conservative Party's term of government. When the Conservatives were re-elected in 1970, Ted Heath made Maggie Thatcher schools minister and she started charging parents for the milk.

She stopped paying for the milk that was sent to schools every day to be drunk at morning break. Most of the milk was thrown away anyway.

Was British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher a student of Marie Curie?

No- Curie died in 1934, when Margaret Thatcher was only 9 years old. However, it is true that Thatcher did study Chemistry at Somerville College in Oxford, from 1943-47. In her final year she specialised in X-Ray Crystallography, and her tutor was another famous lady scientist, Dorothy Hodgkin, who was the person who was REALLY responsible for discovering DNA (although her research was plagiarised by Crick and Watson, who went on to take the credit for Hodgkins's work and won the Nobel Prize for it. In those days, it was easy for men to take the credit for discoveries made by women- nobody paid much attention if the women were brushed aside).
