Covid-19: Social and Economic Inequalities - Question (26 Oct 2020)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, one matter that can be tackled immediately is that of free school meals for kids in the holiday season. If Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland can manage it, why cannot England? We also had long-term inequalities even before the pandemic.

Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill (23 Oct 2020)

Rosena Allin-Khan: ...they can spend Christmas with their families; whether they can hug their loved one in a care home for what may be their last Christmas. The Government have shown that they are willing to take free school meals from the mouths of children. Surely Ministers do not want to steal Christmas as well?

Andrew Slaughter: ...have heard that it has been about £20 million a year for the past five years, although there were predecessor funds and not all of that was spent.

Free School Meals (21 Oct 2020)

Zarah Sultana: There are 3,829 children in Coventry South who receive free school meals. Talking to their parents, I know how valuable that provision is—how they depend on it, and how their kids would starve without it. So I ask the Minister and MPs on the Government Benches: “If you vote against the motion, if you let kids go to sleep hungry at night, how do you not feel any sense of shame?”
