    JEREMY CORBYN kickstarted his summer campaign blitz immediately after Parliament went into recess yesterday with an appearance in the Midlands.

    This comes after PM Theresa May told her MPs earlier this week to take a “proper break” after splits within the party were revealed by leaks to the press over Cabinet meetings and public displays of backbiting and bickering.

    The Labour leader was in Telford to start his campaign to unseat Tories in marginal seats.

    It is expected to be Labour’s biggest ever campaign outside of a general election.

    In last month’s snap election, Lucy Allan held the Telford seat for the Tories by beating Labour’s candidate Kuldip Sahota by just 720 votes.

    Mr Corbyn, who campaigned in Telford in the runup to this year’s election, visited a primary school before a rally in the town centre.

    He said: “I am delighted to return to Telford. I grew up in Shropshire and try to come back whenever I can. It’s where I learnt about the principles of community and social justice and the importance of looking after our environment.”

    “The Conservatives held Telford by just 720 votes this year. We are campaigning to win here at the next general election, whenever it is called.

    “The Conservatives have run out of ideas, their Cabinet is in chaos, and ministers are divided over Brexit.”

    Earlier the Labour leader also visited the Royal Stoke University Hospital, speaking to NHS doctors, nurses and patients.

    He said that nurses had expressed to him their concerns about the future of recruiting new staff in light of Tory cuts to bursaries.

    Trussell Trust warns food crisis will get worse over school holidays

    MILLIONS of children in England will spend their summer going hungry, the Trussell Trust reveals today.

    New analysis from the foodbank charity shows a sharp increase in the number of food packages given to families with children during the school holidays.

    Worst affected will be more than 1.1 million children who won’t receive free school meals over the holidays.

    But the charity warned that, with four million children living in poverty across England, millions more could be at risk.

    Labour accused the government of ignoring the problem and the Department for Education even admitted that it had “made no assessment of the number of children who are at risk of experiencing hunger during school summer holidays in 2017.”

    Shadow education secretary Angela Rayner MP said: “It is a national disgrace that millions of children across the country are at risk of going hungry this summer.

    “The government has admitted it has no plans to assist children who are facing hunger during the school holidays.

    “The Conservatives are failing in their duty of care to children in poverty, whose numbers are increasing to Dickensian levels under Tory austerity.”

    The Institute for Fiscal Studies forecasts that child poverty will rise to five million by 2022.

    Ms Rayner called on the government to bring forward a new strategy to tackle child poverty.

    London has the highest number of children eating free school meals at 212,238.

    North-west England comes in second at 176,140, followed by the West Midlands on 148,443, Yorkshire and the Humber with 129,940, southeast England with 120,933, east of England 95,613, East Midlands 87,113, south-west England 86,108 and north-east England taking 71,655.

    THE DUP defied their Tory allies yesterday after they backed a Labour motion in favour of increasing NHS pay.

    Labour’s proposal won before it even went to a vote as it became clear that the Tories would lose in their bid to oppose calls to end the unfair public-sector pay cap.

    The embarrassing defeat for PM Theresa May was the first time that the DUP broke with its new allies after the two parties struck an £1 billion confidence and supply agreement to vote together on key pieces of legislation after the general election.

    The Commons unanimously approved the nonbinding Opposition Day motion on NHS pay.

    Shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth said: “The real question is will the government now ignore the clear will of the House or will it take action to end the pay cap in the NHS.

    “It’s extremely rare for the government not to vote down an opposition motion and the only explanation is it avoided a vote because it knew it would lose it.

    “So far the Tories’ warm words for NHS staff have proved nothing more than hot air … it’s time the pay cap was ended for all public-sector workers including our overstretched and undervalued NHS workforce.”

    Unison general secretary Dave Prentis said that the DUP supporting the Labour motion proves that the Tories have “lost the argument on public-sector pay.”

    He added: “Ministers must know they’re in the wrong when even their quasi-coalition partners in the DUP have turned against them … It’s now time for the Prime Minister and the chancellor to deliver those proper pay rises.”

    Another motion on university tuition fees — which the DUP campaigned against ahead of the general election — also tabled by Labour was scheduled for after the Star went to print last night.

    After the NHS pay debate, shadow education secretary Angela Rayner took the government to task for sneakily passing through a law to increase the current £9,000 a year university fees by £1,000 through secondary legislation.

    This meant that it was not subject to Parliamentary scrutiny by a debate or vote.

    She also criticised ministers for scrapping the nursing training bursary, getting rid of maintenance grants for students in England, and refusing to increase the current £21,000 salary threshold for repayment of student loans.
