Coffey lays out cost of living support

In the presentation of the social security bill, work and pensions secretary Therese Coffey laid out cost of living support for UK households.

Coffey lauded the lack of “complicated forms and beauocracy” in a bill that will “boost the budgets of millions of stretched families”.

Coffey confirmed what the chancellor has previously announced, that the energy bill supports will be grants “with nothing to repay”.
