Layla Moran continues to back footballer Marcus Rashford's free school meal campaign. 

The Lib Dem MP for Oxford West and Abingdon has backed Oxfordshire's Liberal Democrats' petition calling on Oxfordshire County Council to provide school meals during the holidays to children who receive them in school. 

It comes after Layla called extending free school meal vouchers into the holidays in England a 'no brainer' in the House of Commons last week.

The Lib Dem MP asked, 'is eliminating holiday hunger not a priority?' 

In Ms Moran's constituency alone, 1,277 children are eligible for free school meals. 

Ms Moran was one of the two Oxfordshire MPs that voted in favour of providing free school meals over the holidays.

All four Tory MPs in Oxfordshire voted against the movement.

Ms Moran said: “Holiday hunger hasn’t gone away. Half term is upon us and still the Conservatives aren’t listening. 

“This is absolutely a no-brainer, and in the absence of the Government doing the right thing the County Council should step in and make sure no child goes hungry. 

“I’m calling on everyone to sign this petition to make our voices heard on this.”
