All of Dorset's MPs vote against motion to publish results of food banks research
ALL of Dorset’s MPs voted against a Commons motion to publish the results of research into the use of food banks in the UK.
Labour MP Maria Eagle put a motion before the House last Wednesday calling for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs-commissioned report to be published.
She also called for the Government to bring forward measures to reduce dependency on food banks, including a freeze on energy prices, a water affordability scheme, measures to end abuses of zero hours contracts, incentives to companies to pay a living wage and the abolition of the under-occupancy penalty.
The debate raged between Conservative MPs, who blamed economic policies of the previous government, and Labour MPs who blamed coalition policies.
