Green MEP calls for urgent action to help people reliant on food banks

Daily Echo: Food bank use soars by 60 per cent Food bank use soars by 60 per cent

Food bank use in Hampshire has risen by almost 60 per cent in the past year, claims a Euro MP.

Now current Green Party MEP Keith Taylor has called for urgent action after figures showed that 22,655 people turned to foodbanks in the county in 2013/14.

He is one of the 118 candidates standing for election to represent the south-east in the European elections on May 22.

Each of the 15 parties taking part has now published their full lists of candidates, meaning the election campaign can start in earnest.

Mr Taylor, who has been an MEP since 2010, has highlighted the increase in foodbank use across the south coast.

Figures from the Trussell Trust, the charity which runs food banks, shows that 14,234 people used them in Hampshire in 2012/13.

But that increased by 59 per cent to 22,655 the following year.

And the charity’s figures show that on the Isle of Wight, the number rose from 3,875 in 2012/13 to 6,075 in 2013/14.

Mr Taylor said: “This latest set of statistics from the Trussell Trust is conclusive in proving that the so-called ‘economic recovery’ is a fallacy.

“Though the economy is growing it’s clearly not working. When thousands of my constituents are forced to use food banks, and the numbers keep growing, it’s abundantly clear that urgent action on poverty is required.

“To address the serious poverty faced by thousands in south-east England we need to ensure that jobs pay enough for people to build a life on.

“That means making the minimum wage a living wage.”

But Conservative Daniel Hannan, a fellow current MEP who is also standing for re-election, said: “I think this is conclusive proof that Mr Taylor struggles with basic economics.

“Food banks were only invented during the last Labour Government.

“Their use increased 1,000 per cent under Labour but it would be crazy to say that was because Labour threw people out of work, it was because a new service became more widespread as more people used the scheme, and that is continuing.

“It is a wonderful idea to gather unwanted food and use it, but it has no correlation with the economy.”

How many checks are made about the people who actually use them as I've heard stories about people who see it as a way of getting something for nothing and of others who can afford to go drinking every night. The scroungers know every trick to live of the tax payer.

There are genuine users I'm sure but how many users are the same people that have no dignity and refuse to work just because they don't want to? Plenty I'm sure.

The use of foodbanks proves nothing. Start at the bottom, if you don't work then you're entitled to free rent, free council tax and an income at taxpayers expense. The free money is adequate so something is going wrong in the middle – how people manage it.

People receive enough free money to live so that isn't the cause. The only reason can be poor financial management.

Council tax is reduce back to a bare min, 20% for first unemployed still as to be paid which pays for the bare min of services, Rent is reduce also down to a bare min, And this only applies if all are unemployed in that house hold, or the household is a single person living on their own, for each person in house hold that is unemployed the reduction is less, or if a household total income is over a certain level then they don't get any reduction in rent or council tax.
Both do not get paid by any tax payer, your tax that you pay out is for you and you alone.

There will always be a few people who take advantage of any system. That doesn't mean the service shouldn't be provided. The rise in the need for food banks is simply a sign of the times. Many people on low incomes, not just those on benefits are not able to make ends meet without this type of facilty. It would have been better for all if the country's cirucmstances had not resulted in the rise of food banks. Perhaps in the future they may not be needed in such numbers, but until the economy recovers for ordinary people and not just a few encouraging signs for big business and banking, foodbanks will meet a growing need.
