    It appears the government may be ready to compromise on the issue of free school meals during the holidays after Boris Johnson said he will “make sure” that no child goes hungry in the UK this winter. Mr Johnson admitted that holiday hunger “is an issue” and “something we need to focus on” but said “the way to deal with it, we think, is by increasing the funds available for universal credit, we’ve put up by about £1000 a year.
