Hard to believe that Tory MP @drcarolinej, who is a part-time Consultant paediatrician, voted against #FreeSchoolMeals during a pandemic. Itโ€™s just so wrong headed and shameful

TELEGRAPH: Care staff ordered to work in one home only #TomorrowsPapersToday

This has been a long time coming- have been reporting on problem of transmission via multiple home visits since April. But there are social care labour shortages (widely expect to get worse after end of transition), and care home managers will ask for a plan to fill the gaps.

Really canโ€™t get enough of hearing MPs justify charging children for food in schools, knowing most will have dined out in subsidised bars and restaurants, while claiming daily allowances and expenses. Thereโ€™s something very wrong with our priorities #FreeSchoolMeals #Newsnight

If the Tories really cared about ending child food poverty, they'd implement 3 recommendations from the National Food Strategy as laid out in Marcus Rashford's excellent petition. Why won't the Govt implement those recommendations? #Newsnight

Mr Simmonds is making excuses for the disgraceful way the majority of Tory MPs acted today. We should not be living in a UK where children are growing up without access to healthy meals. #Newsnight

#freeschoolmeals How many children get free school meals? England: 1.3 million children claimed for free school meals in 2019, 15% of state-educated pupils, take-up greatest in parts of London, north of England & Midlands between 1/4 and 1/3 of all pupils receiving free meals

Quoted @BBradley_Mans

Gov has lots of responsibilities: supporting the vulnerable, helping people to help themselves, balancing the books. Not as simple as you to make out Marcus. Extending FSM to sch hols passes responsibility for feeding kids away from parents, to the State. It increases dependency.

I grew up in Mansfield. I grew up with kids whose parents couldn't feed them. I saw how shit their lots were. I was lucky. Mum worked on a checkout & dad down the pit. We ate. Some of our friends didn't. I regret terribly that my home town now has an MP who doesn't get it.

After the disgrace of a vote today to not provide meals for our most vulnerable children during half term , we will do our best to provide local families meals during this time . Please can I appeal to any other business that can help to do so up and down the country . Thankyou

Over 310,000 people have now signed Marcus Rashford's petition which calls on the Govt to implement 3 recommendations from the National Food Strategy, including expanding access to #FreeSchoolMeals. Add your signature tonight: #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY

Rishi Sunak spent ยฃ500m on the "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme. It costs around ยฃ20m to provide free school meals for a week. There is money for half-price Nando's but there's no money to feed children?

1/x - I don't normally do threads, but after hearing today's decision by Parliament not to fund additional #freeschoolmeals I thought I'd do one. Like @MarcusRashford, I do OK for myself now. I have a great job that I love which pays well - I'm blessed & grateful.

The Government literally spent millions on their Eat Out To Help Out scheme and then completely failed to feed hungry school children. The hypocrisy ... I cannot. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Quoted @BootstrapCook

The Tories have voted AGAINST @MarcusRashford plea to feed hungry children during the pandemic. Never forget this. In a time of national crisis, they subsidised their own meals despite ยฃ80k salaries, propped up their wealthy mates, and left over a million children to go hungry.

Food banks in England will now have to distribute yet more emergency food parcels to children in the coming days #FreeSchoolMeals Food banks cannot continue to pick up the pieces @MarcusRashford @Food_Foundation @right2fooduk #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY #Right2Food

Shocking that Tory MPs just voted against continuing free school meals when we know this will be a really tough winter for families.
