MP Alan Duncan says anti-hunger demonstrators were in wrong place
An MP whose constituency office was the centre of a demonstration by activists calling for action on hunger says he was in his Whitehall ministerial office working on the issue at the time.
Around a dozen activists from the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign gathered outside Rutland and Melton MP Alan Duncan’s office in High Street, Melton, on Tuesday.
More than 100 groups have united to call for action by the G8 – comprising the governments of eight of the world’s wealthiest countries – on the issue of global hunger.
Mr Duncan, who is international development minister, said: “It’s slightly odd of them to gather outside my constituency office, particularly as I was inside my ministerial office in Whitehall doing exactly what they’re asking for.
