Education Secretary should resign rather than cut free school meals for infants – Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the government’s failure to rule out scrapping universal free school meals for infants, said:

“It is deeply alarming that Ministers failed to rule out scrapping universal free school meals for infants in the upcoming Budget, repeatedly dodging our questions in the Commons.

“With children turning up to school too hungry to learn and millions in food poverty, the government must urgently assure parents and teachers that universal infant free school meals are safe and, quite frankly, the Education Secretary should be prepared to resign rather than implement such a brutal cut.”
