Bishop of Durham asks about Social Security payments

The Bishop of Durham asked a question about rising poverty on 10th October 2022, during a debate on social security and inflation:

The Lord Bishop of Durham: My Lords, I take the Minister back again to the question asked by the noble Baroness, Lady Lister. This morning, the Legatum Institute made it very clear that the number of people in poverty will rise if the rates are not increased by the rate of inflation. Will the Minister acknowledge that that is simply the fact if the Government do not do that?

Lord Davies of Gower (Con): I appreciate and acknowledge that. I fully understand the point that the right reverend Prelate is making.
