Debates

Additional documents:

17.1

Debate - Food Poverty

“This Council notes the increase in poverty across our City, in particular the rise in food poverty.

 

The DWP data reports that households in the City claiming Universal Credit has risen by 25% and yet this Government is still intent on reducing this benefit by £20 a week.

 

As we enter the colder months, many families will face the stark choice – Heat or Eat. This is totally unacceptable when we are one of the richest countries in the world.

 

We believe that the Right to Food is a basic human right and welcome the independent Nation Food Strategy Review. We believe that the Right to Food must be incorporated in any strategy going forward and a letter should be sent to Henry Dimbleby, who is heading that review, stating our position.”
