Tulip Siddiq – 2021 Comments on Free School Meals

The comments made by Tulip Siddiq, the Shadow Children and Early Years Minister, on 14 January 2021.

Time and time again this government has had to be shamed into providing food for hungry children over school holidays. Stopping Free School Meals support over half-term will be devastating for many families who are living on the breadline in this pandemic.

The Prime Minister’s claim to be morally outraged at images of woefully inadequate food parcels will ring hollow for parents who are worried about whether they will be able to put food on the table for their children over half-term.
