MetiNews.Com - The Health Secretary refused to say if he regretted voting against the initiative
Breaking News ! Piers Morgan laid into Matt Hancock on Good Morning Britain today, as he refused to say if he regretted voting against free school meals during the pandemic. Piers quizzed the Health Secretary about the food parcels that have been sent out to families on free school meals and described it as a scandal. Mr Hancock said that he was glad the problem had been highlighted and that the company involved had apologised for the inadequate parcels. But Piers then turned to the minister's voting record and the fact that he had voted against the initiative in the House of Commons. Piers said: "The reason you're glad now lets be honest is that you got shamed into it by a young football player with a conscience. "Do you regret now, given how glad you are it's happening, do you regret voting against it?"

Mr Hancock struggled to answer and said: "errr I'll put it this way in the first lockdown we took this action and now as you say."
