Civil society calls on UK Government to allow UN food poverty envoy access to the UK

Making Rights Real has signed a joint letter from Just Fair UK calling on the UK Prime Minister to stop evading the scrutiny of the UN on the issue of food poverty. The 86 organisations that signed the letter to the Prime Minister are calling for him to cease evading the scrutiny of the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on the right to food, Professor Michael Fakhri. The UN special rapporteur wants to conduct an official visit to the UK and should be granted access.
