My comments to the all-party parliamentary environment group, which were inspired by a very good question from Kerry McCarthy, were explicitly designed to say that we should not patronise or judge people on poorer incomes for the choices they make. I know that Mrs Lewell-Buck is very busy, but had she been there she would have had a better understanding of the context in which those comments were made.
