Additional information

The Scrutiny Panel to note, the work around ending child poverty in Britain undertaken by Marcus Rashford.


The Chair referred to the work that had been undertaken by Marcus Rashford; advising that as this Scrutiny Pane had concluded its evidence gathering and due to the current situation he had not agreed to the request to contact Mr Rashford to speak to the Scrutiny Panel about his Task Force and the work being done.  It might be useful for Mr Rashford to be invited to speak at the Food Poverty Festival, should this recommendation of the Panel be approved by Cabinet.


The Chair thanked the Scrutiny Panel, the co-optees, internal and external expert advisors and Officers supporting the work of the Panel for their dedication and hard work during this Scrutiny Review
