Scottish Parliament: School Children (Holiday Support) (5 Nov 2020)

Alasdair Allan: Although one might think that free school meals would command the support of all parties in the Scottish Parliament, over the past few weeks we have seen the farce of Scottish Tory MPs voting against it at Westminster, while Tory MSPs claim to support it—a move that the Tory education spokesperson has admitted makes his party and his party’s leader hypocrites. Does the cabinet secretary...

The FE...

Public Health (4 Nov 2020)

Ian Byrne: ...due to a steep rise in covid-19 cases. Liverpool’s Mayor and, following that, the Leader of the Opposition called for a circuit-breaker lockdown, which would have been timed to run alongside the school holidays. This would have relieved pressure on our health and social care services and saved lives, but tragically that call fell on deaf ears once again. The challenges facing our...

Northern Ireland: Universal Credit Migration: Child Poverty (4 Nov 2020)

Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Nov 2020)

Gareth Thomas: I hope that the Prime Minister and the Chancellor now regret their decision not to extend free school meals to cover half-term and will join the richly deserved praise for all those community groups, councils and, indeed, businesses that stepped up to stop our nation’s children going hungry last week. Will the Prime Minister now commit to do the right thing at Christmas and extend free...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (3 Nov 2020)

Lord Newby: told to self-isolate, they are provided with details about how to claim the compensation, with the Government then paying up quickly? Secondly, will the Government commit now to paying for free school meals during the Christmas period? It is simply unacceptable at this point for them to cut off a lifeline for the poorest children in the country. It is equally unfair for Manchester...

Lockdown: Economic Support (3 Nov 2020)

Mary Foy: Last month, the Government disgraced themselves by voting against extending free school meals into the holidays for our most vulnerable children. Even if the Government will not reverse that cruel decision, will they at least follow Action for Children’s recommendations and extend free school meals for all families in receipt of universal credit?

Covid-19 (2 Nov 2020)

Rosena Allin-Khan: ...who helped to deliver food and medicines to our most vulnerable at the height of the crisis, and I have been incredibly moved by all those businesses, struggling themselves, that provided free school meals locally when the Government failed to act.

School Attendance: Covid-19 — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (2 Nov 2020)

Siobhain McDonagh: May I make it clear from the start that I believe in the importance of children attending school? No other form of education improves on that, and as long as we can safely keep schools open, doing so should be a priority. At the heart of the debate, however, must be the consideration of precisely what education a child can receive when at home. Let us consider the reality: when schools...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Post-primary Transfer Testing (2 Nov 2020)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Post-primary Transfer Testing (2 Nov 2020)

Robbie Butler: ...Deputy Chair and Daniel McCrossan both picked up on socially disadvantaged people. I was deeply saddened to see in the consultation socially disadvantaged people, such as children who are on free school meals and SEN pupils.

Asylum Seekers - Private Notice Question (29 Oct 2020)

Lord Rosser: My Lords, last week the Government voted against both free school meals for hungry children in the UK and a legal route to safety for refugee children.
