Kate Green responds to the vote on Labour’s motion to extend free school meals

Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the vote on Labour’s motion to extend free school meals over the holidays, said:

“Boris Johnson and the Conservatives have badly let down more than one million children and their families.

“No child should go hungry over the holidays, but the Government is blocking the action needed to prevent this.

“We pay tribute to Marcus Rashford and others for shining a spotlight on this incredibly important issue. This campaign is not over and the government must reconsider.”
