THE PRIME MINISTER AND FOOD BANKS

That this House concurs with the conclusion of 27 Anglican bishops that the Prime Minister is responsible for a national crisis which has seen 500,000 people visit food banks since Easter 2013; notes with shame the bishops' concern that in the world's seventh richest country people are still going hungry; further notes with grave concern that in the last year 5,500 people have been admitted to hospital with malnutrition; and concludes that the welfare system is failing to provide a robust last line of defence against hunger and that the Government's cuts and policy has made hundreds of thousands of poor people more vulnerable and dependent on charity.
