Department for Work and Pensions (2 Jul 2019)

Alex Burghart: I very much want to argue with the hon. Lady. The truth is, is it not, that poverty is a result of some of the problems that people face in society.

Is not the more pertinent issue that some parts of the Government machine—Departments and...
