MPs in Stamford, Rutland and the Deepings vote against Manchester United star Marcus Rashford's free school meal plan for children

MPs in this area have rejected a plan to extend free meals over the school holidays until Easter 2021.

Stamford and Bourne MP Gareth Davies, Rutland MP Alicia Kearns and the Deepings MP John Hayes, all Conservatives, voted against the provision of hot food for children until Easter 2021 during school holidays, called for by The Labour Party.

East Northamptonshire MP Tom Pursglove, also a Tory, was appointed to verify the count as a "teller for the noes" so his vote did not officially count. Meanwhile, Shailesh Vara, the Conservative MP for North West Cambridgeshire, did not cast a vote.
