Call from cross-party MPs for new ‘Hunger Minister’

  • “19% of children under 15 in the UK live with adults who struggle to buy food.”
  • “MPs say the number of people without reliable access to affordable, nutritious food is “significant and growing”, with the unemployed, sick or those with children most likely to be affected.”
  • “The combination of high living costs, stagnating wages and often, the roll-out of Universal Credit and the wider benefits system, means that levels of hunger in Britain are some of the highest across Europe.”
