Prime Minister John Key says parents need to be responsible for breakfast and food for lunch.
Mr Harawira says there is an immediate problem that needs to be addressed.
"I don't disagree with the whanau stuff. I don't disagree with the issues about better housing. I don't disagree with the issue about more jobs.
