WE DID IT! Foodbanks and hunger to be debated in the House of Commons. #jackspetition
Two days after launching #jackspetition, Labour have announced that the Opposition Day debate on the 18th of December will be about food bank use and hunger in the UK.
We still have two weeks to get as many signatures as possible do please please add your voices to this debate – I’m reeling from the fact that we’ve managed to secure a debate in Parliament so quickly(!) but the sheer strength of public opinion on this was clearly too much to ignore.
I’ll keep you all posted – it’s going to be a difficult few weeks.
Many, many thanks, and please keep signing and sharing – we haven’t won yet but at least it’s coming out for discussion – something the Government has been desperately trying to avoid.
People power at its best. Thankyou all so much for your support.
