McMahon left ‘staggered’ by Eustice response to food cost question

Shadow environment, food and rural affairs secretary Jim McMahon was left “staggered” by secretary of state George Eustice’s response to an urgent question on food price inflation. 

McMahon told the House of Commons that Eustice was speaking more “like a commentator” than a government member responsible for food.

Eustice told the House that the government were “monitoring the situation” and that it has “put in place an unprecedented package of support”.
