Liz questions Michael Gove about the impact of a no-deal Brexit on the food industry and foodbanks

[26/09/2019 | No comment]

As Chair of Feeding Leicester I am extremely concerned about the impact of a no-deal Brexit on the cost and availability of food, especially for people who are already struggling to make ends meet.

I challenged Michael Gove about this in the House of Commons, in particular how on earth we are going to support our food banks who are desperately worried that no-deal will threaten the supply of surplus food that we tragically now depend on to feed the poor.

You can watch my question and Mr Gove’s response here.
