Ben Bradley defends school meals tweet

Tory MO Ben Bradley, who was accused of stigmatising working class families after sending a controversial tweet, said it had been “totally taken out of context”. He told BBC Breakfast: “I was merely making the point that there are kids who live in really chaotic situations, really difficult lives, where actually giving them an unrestricted voucher to spend on whatever isn’t helpful. “The point I’m making is we need to wrap our arms as a society around those families. That’s why Government has given that money to local government because they are best placed working with social services, working with schools to be able to find those families, to target them, to help them in a more holistic way than meal vouchers.”
