Tulip Siddiq responds to images online showing inadequate food parcels being delivered to some families

 

Tulip Siddiq MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, responding to images online showing inadequate food parcels being delivered to some families, said:

 

“Images circulating on social media of woefully inadequate food parcels going to families are a serious concern.

 

“The Department for Education’s investigation must happen immediately so we know where the money is going. We cannot let children go hungry during this lockdown.

 

“The Government must get on and deliver the national voucher scheme it has committed to restarting to ensure that all children are able to get the food they need.”
