Voluntary and Charitable Sectors — Motion to Take Note (26 Jun 2014)

the Bishop of Derby: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Baroness and her party for securing this debate.

We need a supplementary system of representation that...

That, of course, may be another understanding of the term “universal credit” that the Minister may like to note....
