CIE0039

Written evidence submitted by Mr Tim Rose

 

It’s good the government have started to support children eligible for FSM in the lockdown, but I think the provision should be extended, e.g.

 

Extend the voucher scheme to cover the May half-term and the longer summer holiday, as earners may well not be back at work until the autumn; and I also think there is a good case to permit schools to issue vouchers regardless of immigration status and for new Universal Credit claimants and be reimbursed for doing so.
