As it happens, the hon. Gentleman’s question gives me an opportunity to pay particular tribute to Liz Kendall, who came to see me with a representative selection of organisations that run food banks. We had a good conversation about making sure that we can continue to support them in the future come what may. I am absolutely confident that the successful operation of food banks and all the wonderful people who work in them will not be affected by Brexit, whether it is deal or no deal.
