Tory plans to cuts free school meals condemned by Hull MP

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has slammed Tory plans to change the threshold for free school meals eligibility under Universal Credit.
The move could leave over a million children nationally without a hot meal in schools.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Diana Johnson MP said: "Owing to policies pursued since 2010, we now have 20,700 children in poverty across Hull, and food poverty and holiday hunger are growing, including, despite what the Secretary of State says, in working families. 
"Will restricting free school meals in Universal Credit create a cliff edge and make the situation even more dire in the most disadvantaged communities?"
