Up to 4,600 children across Sutton could go hungry if Tory ministers do not reverse their decision to end a vital voucher scheme.

Since schools were closed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, vulnerable children who rely on free school meals have been using a £15 per week voucher scheme instead.

However, Tory ministers have announced they will be stopping the voucher scheme, despite many hard-pressed families facing uncertainty and struggling to make ends meet.

Sutton Liberal Democrats are calling on the borough’s Tory MPs, Paul Scully and Elliot Colburn, to stop toeing the government line and stand up for the 4,600 children across Sutton at risk of going hungry this summer.
