Eight Bishops from our region have signed a letter condemning the Government for its welfare reform bill.
The Bill, to be debated next week, means for the next three years, financial support for families will increase by no more than 1 per cent, regardless of the rise in the cost of living.
Church leaders, including the Bishop of Grimsby David Rossdale, have written to the Government saying the reform will push two thousand children into poverty.
