Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to news that Tory MP said ‘chaotic parents’ were to blame for children not having breakfast, said:
“It is completely unacceptable for a Conservative MP to blame parents for the challenges created by his own government’s chronic incompetence.
“Children are at risk of going hungry because of a decade of stagnant wages and cuts to social security. Not only have the Conservatives voted against helping these children, they are now blaming their parents.
“It is not too late to do the right thing and extend free school meals over Christmas.”
