Ahead of his visit later this year, Sustain has submitted evidence to the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and extreme poverty on the state of the Right to Food in the UK
In November of this year, Phillip Alston the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights will be visiting the UK on an official state visit.
In our submission on behalf of the Right to Food project we highlighted how recent welfare and tax reforms have impacted upon people's ability to afford food; why we need our Government to commit to measuring household food insecurity on a national scale; and some of the impacts that we foresee Brexit may have on food security.
We welcome this visit and we hope that the UK Government takes its recommendations seriously.
