Department of Work and Pensions in denial on food banks

The Department of Work and Pensions within the UK Government is in denial about the cause of the increase in food bank use. This is the conclusion of the Scottish Parliament’s Welfare Reform Committee in a report published today.


Evidence received by the Committee suggests a rise of around 400% in people receiving assistance in 2013/14 when compared with the same period in 2012/13.
