Arizona Jessop started this petition to UK Parliament and

MPs receive a £25 allowance for expenses per day despite being on already high salaries. There are thousands of families across the UK who are unable to afford food or essential items to live a comfortable life.

I am calling for the end of subsidisation of MPs food and expenses and ask that the taxpayers' money be redistributed to ensure that no child has to go hungry. 

Why should someone who makes a good wage and can afford the cost of a meal be able to claim back the costs and expenses, when these same people are actively turning a blind eye to the families who are unable to afford food and essential items?

These low income households are the ones who need the support of reduced costs for food, these families are the ones who should be being protected by the government using the public's money.

We will not stand by as MPs reap the benefits and leave those who are below the poverty line struggling to find where their next meal will be coming from or wondering when they will get it.

No child should have to go hungry! No child should go to sleep each night knowing that the people with the power to make the necessary change do not care about them. We want change and we will use our voices for those who are unable to speak out such as the vulnerable families and young people that need the support.

Gov.uk rejected a previous petition attempt, claiming that it is not their responsibility to decide on the expenses of MPs. Therefore I urge the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) to enforce the change we demand.

Stop subsidising MP's expenses, and redirect the money of the UK taxpayers towards ending child food poverty!
