The second reading of Emma Lewell Buck MP's household food insecurity measurement bill has been postponed due to time constraints.
Despite our evidence that 1 in 4 parents are skipping meals because they can’t afford to eat, Emma Lewell-Buck’s MP private member’s bill to create a measurement of household food insecurity was not read on Friday the 2nd of February due to time constraints. Instead the bill will now be read on the 26th October.
There are now over 100 cross-party MPs calling for this measurement and Emma will be campaigning alongside End Hunger UK to make sure we can know the true scale of hidden hunger.
In the meantime we will be putting the pressure on Government, and continuing to raise awareness of household food insecurity across the UK.
To read more about measuring household food insecurity, Sustain along with the University of Oxford, and the Food Foundation published a report outlining key facts supporting the case for measurement.
