MPs voted against feeding hungry kids during the holidays – 11 outright condemnations
With many families experiencing greater hardship than ever, Labour put a request before the House of Commons to extend the Free School Meals programme into holidays via a voucher scheme, just as Marcus Rashford had persuaded them to do during the summer.
NEW: Labour vote to extend free school meals over the holidays until Easter 2021 is defeated 322-261.
Government majority of 61.

Remember when the tories spent weeks screaming that teachers needed to get back in their disease pits or else the disadvantaged would suffer then decided that the fairest system for tackling vulnerable hungry kids is to not let them eat food

They've screwed the elderly. Those in their 20s. Students. GCSE kids. Now anyone with a rumbling tummy at a school desk.
