Statement on Sue Gray report

The Sue Gray report clearly shows that the Prime Minister has presided over a widespread culture of disregard for coronavirus regulations. Furthermore, questions are now being raised about whether the Prime Minister misled Parliament when asked about these events. Talking to constituents, it is clear discussions about parties in Downing Street remain a damaging distraction

Julian’s parliamentary committee consults public on access to food during coronavirus outbreak

April 9, 2020

“I currently serve on Parliament’s Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee, responsible for scrutinising government actions in this crucial area.

We want to hear from the general public on their experiences of accessing food during the ongoing outbreak, to inform our new inquiry into ‘Covid-19 and food supply’.

This inquiry is meant to analyse current issues with food supply, what is going well and what needs to be improved, and will hopefully provide some useful advice as all public authorities continue to address the emergency, in collaboration with charities and food producers.

I would encourage York residents to submit their experiences to the online survey. This can be completed in under 10 minutes, and is open until 28th April.

To be comprehensive, the inquiry needs to hear from a wide range of people and experiences, ranging from in-person and online shopping, to those medically vulnerable people receiving food parcels to protect them against contact with others, and those who have struggled to get deliveries, or run up against shortages in supermarkets.

The current emergency has shown everyone is united in their need for accessible and healthy food. As movement restrictions continue, government, food producers and charities all need to ensure we are improving provision and coordination, so that everyone is getting the food they need, and the vulnerable are safeguarded”.

Residents can access the online survey at https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=nt3mHDeziEC-Xo277ASzSsdf6aRbb_hHi61kcnJ3-KJUOFFXNEhLSDlFTUZaQzU1TlNEWVkwUVhHUC4u
