Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, commenting on reports that UNICEF will help feed UK children for the first time in its history, said:
“The fact that UNICEF is having to step in to feed our country’s hungry children is a disgrace and Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak should be ashamed.
“We are one of the richest countries in the world. Our children should not have to rely on humanitarian charities that are used to operating in war zones and in response to natural disasters.
“Charities and businesses across the country have done a brilliant job stepping in where the Government has failed, but it should have never come to this.”
