Jonathan Reynolds responds to the publication of data from the Trussell Trust on food bank usage

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow  Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the publication of data from the Trussell Trust on food bank usage, said

“Months into this crisis too many people are still falling through the gaps in the safety net and children are going hungry as a result. The Government’s incompetence is worsening already unacceptable levels of child poverty in the UK.

“While the changes to Universal Credit are welcome, the Government must take further, urgent action to make sure that no-one goes hungry during the crisis.”
