Breaking News ! Health Secretary Matt Hancock couldn't say how much he spends on weekly food for his family when questioned by Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain. Piers asked the question during an interview today (Wednesday, January 13) amid a row over meals being provided to children at school during lockdown. Mr Hancock has three children and splits his time between Little Thurlow in West Suffolk (his constituency) and London. Piers asked him this morning: "Do you know how much you spend on food a week for your family, as a household?" The tough question followed complaints from parents around the UK about the quality of free school meals "hampers". The Health Secretary looked taken aback by the question and said: "I don't know precisely, because unfortunately I don't have much time to cook at the moment, I'm mostly in the office. So I haven't got an exact figure. " His response drew a smirk from Susanna Reid as she watched the government minister appear to squirm.

. With Hancock clearly wrongfooted, the host asked: "Would you hazard a guess on roughly what you spend a week as a family?" In the face of this second attack, the Health Secretary began to look like a deer in the headlights. "I'd have to go and look it up, I'd have to go and work it out Piers, I'm not going to have a stab at it," he said tersely. Hancock's admission could not come at a worse time when parents across the country are experiencing food poverty like never before. News broke this morning that, under pressure from parents, the "meagre" free school meals parcels some have received will be replaced by a £15 voucher. This is exactly half the amount carried by food vouchers for struggling parents at the beginning of the pandemic. Hancock has also revealed that it is "impossible to know" when lockdown will end.
