Food Prices and Food Poverty
Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]
Caroline Spelman (Secretary of State, Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; Meriden, Conservative)
When the hon. Gentleman checks Hansard tomorrow, he will see that I did not use the word “triumph”. Opposition Members have failed to observe that, for many decades, many institutions in this country have helped the poor and needy. If he has never been to a harvest festival and understood that churches collect food to distribute among those in their community who really need it, he is not alert to how much that is part of British culture.
