Naga Munchetty and Ben Bradley clash over free school meals row ‘We’re paying for that!’

The presenter said: “I’ll tell you what is interesting, you talk about the communication around this story – people look at examples like MPs allowed to eat and drink alcohol, not subsidised  – but run at a loss.”

Munchetty went on to point out: “We’re paying for that! But you don’t want to provide extra money for free school meal vouchers?”

However, Ben shut down her claims, telling the host: “I don’t think it’s a fair comparison. There’s a lot of stories going around at the minute about MPs getting food budgets, that’s just not true.

“The Parliamentary estate isn’t just there for MPs, it’s there for thousands and thousands of staff of which the MPs are a very small proportion – including visitors.”
