Free School Meals

17th June 2020

That’s why I was delighted to support my colleague Robert Halfon MP, Chair of the Education Select Committee, and Marcus Rashford in the campaign to extend Free School Meal vouchers through the summer. 

This is an unprecedented crisis – and it has been right that the Prime Minister and Chancellor have taken unprecedented steps to help shield the most vulnerable.

Free School Meals are a lifeline for many very low income families and therefore had to be continued through the summer as we move through this crisis.

I’m glad the Government has now done the right thing and confirmed an extension to the Free School Meals scheme.
