In Treasury questions earlier this week, I asked the Minister what his Department was doing to protect the people who depend on the £1billion spent each year by public sector institutions on food, in the event of no deal Brexit. Sadly his reply about tariffs just won’t cut it. With the clock ticking, the Treasury should ring-fence funds now to guarantee that school children, hospital patients and elderly people in care continue to receive the essential food they need. Following the exchange I contributed to a Westminster Hall debate on the same topic, highlighting the impending child food poverty crisis should food prices rocket because of Brexit – with 10% of children in the UK already living in severe food insecurity, no deal is simply not an option.
