Default Parliament Vote (21/10/20) Labour asks for School Dinners for children: England

The prime minister has stated
£1,000 added to Universal Credit per year.
That's a no from him.

Labour want School Dinners
to carry on in the holidays.





A LibDem MP bought it up.


A few Conservatives are going to vote with Labour at 7PM.
But will they get enough votes to win today?

The Tories turning down the chance to feed children? I am so shocked and not at all used to that party lacking basic empathy!

He claims everything nearly is covered by it.
IF you can get it and whenever you do.
At times it is obviously the help required.

This vote though is penny pinching to the lowest degree.
Not that I'm surprised he's against it.

How is it that universal credit didn't cover this in term times.
Also who finances universal credit.

Yes the taxpayer so why be so difficult messing about like this with children's welfare.

No I doubt it.
Despite many Con MPs thinking this should be done.

Few will risk or want black marks put against them by Johnson and Cummings, for following their conscience.

It’s 2020... getting a job is not that easy and simple anymore and luck may not be on their side do you realise how many stages you have to go through to get a job now?

I think you'll find you're wrong there arista - poorer kids are more likely to be overweight because good quality food is expensive, junk is cheap, and also poorer kids are less likely to have physical extracurricular activities (which are also often not cheap - my daughter's stage school is over £100/month for example).

Sadly kids from low income families - if they don't have a sport (or if sport groups are cancelled/postponed) - are quite likely to end up overweight.

Disgraceful.
This government has sunk to being even lower than low.
Gutless backbenchers as good as robbing from children.

This should never be forgotten and I hope it won't be either.

There shouldn’t be the need for charities to feed children in one of the richest countries in the world
