Low-Income Families In Britian And Easterhouse And Healthy Diet

EDM number 907 in 1990-91, proposed by Jimmy Wray on 05/06/1991.

That, although not suprised, this House is deeply distressed at the findings by a nationwide survey that low-income families go hungry and that parents have sometimes to avoid eating in order to provide their children with food; treats with contempt politically biased claims that the blame lies with the poor and not with the unjust and uncaring Government policies which, at the same time, take money from the poor to give it to the rich and foster unemployment, business closures and destruction of the social security system; expresses its sympathy to all the low-income families in the United Kingdom, especially those of Easterhouse in Glasgow where the extent of poverty is such that perinatal mortality, accompanied by deprivation and cuts in the social security system, is three times the national average; calls upon the British people to mobilise for a campaign to restore the urgent social benefits to help families in need coupled with adequate national information about healthy diets; but reminds the country that the real way out from this is a successful and sustained economic system bringing prosperity to all.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
