Some...

Baroness Howarth of Breckland: ...does not the noble Baroness agree that it is a great pity that we live in a society where payday loans are necessary at all and where children are living in poverty when their parents are actually working?

The proportion of children in poverty who are from families in work rose from 54% to 63%, and that statistic can only get worse.

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...and the desire for change into constructive channels based on reason and trumping some single-party brainwave is surely unanswerable.
