NHS Shetland - Survey - March 2021

Letters / He voted against it

There has been a lot of press coverage about the recent House of Commons debate about food banks.

Some Tories, in holiday mood, distinguished themselves by bellowing with laughter every time a case of poverty was mentioned.

Just in case he doesn’t mention it in his next communiqué to the Shetland Times, I thought I would mention that one of the 296 MPs who voted against investigating (a) the use of food banks, and (b) UK hunger in general, was the Right Honourable Alistair Carmichael, member for Orkney and Shetland.
