Food banks are ‘up­lift­ing’

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

Con­ser­va­tive MP Ja­cob Rees-Mogg has been crit­i­cised for com­ments sug­gest­ing that the rise in the num­ber of food banks was “rather up­lift­ing”.

Dur­ing an in­ter­view he said: “To have char­i­ta­ble sup­port given by peo­ple vol­un­tar­ily to sup­port their fel­low cit­i­zens I think is rather up­lift­ing and shows what a good, com­pas­sion­ate coun­try we are.”
