Luke Pollard responds to the National Food Strategy Report

Luke Pollard MP, Labour’s Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary, responding to the National Food Strategy Report, said:

“This is a massive wake-up call to fix Britain’s broken food system.  But this Government have proved incapable of ending the growing foodbank scandal and the obesity crisis, while their trade deals betray our British farmers.

“The Government should be working to ensure every family can afford for their children to get a healthy hot meal every day. Britain’s high food and farming standards must be protected in law not watered down in trade deals.

“We need a radical obesity strategy, ensuring families are able to access healthy food, supporting local leisure facilities and tackling rising child poverty.”
