The Department for Work and Pensions has responded to claims from the Trussel Trust - which runs the largest number of foodbanks - that the rapid increase in the number of people using foodbanks across Wales is partly attributable to benefit delays or changes.

The number of people using foodbanks in Wales has more than doubled in the last year.
Between 1st April 2013 and 31st March 2014, 913,138 people in crisis across the UK were provided with three days' emergency food, 79,049 of whom were in Wales. In 2012-13, the figure for Wales was 35,919.
The charity which runs the largest number, the Trussel Trust, also says over half of referrals are because of benefit changes or delays.
A total of 35 Trussel Trust foodbanks opened in Wales in 2013-14. That compares to just one in 2008-09.
