Social Security Benefits: Children

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN HL9531, tabled on 16 July 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bates on 16 July (HL9124), whether they will now provide an estimate of the number of working families with two children or more currently using foodbanks following reductions in benefit entitlement or delays in benefit payments.

We do not record the number of people using foodbanks or other types of food aid. [Some food aid providers, such as the Trussell Trust, produce statistics on the number of food parcels distributed.]
