Politics latest news: Northern Ireland Protocol change will not break law, insists minister  

Rachel Maclean, a Home Office minister, was told that some people are already working “every hour that God sends them” but they are still reliant on food banks as she was asked about her “better paid job” comments (see the post below at 08.47). 

Told that it is not as straightforward as simply working more for many people, Ms Maclean told Sky News: “I am not suggesting that for one moment, but we have often heard in the past when people are facing problems with their budgets that one of the obstacles, and it may not be for everybody, is about being able to take on more hours or even move to a better paid job. 

“But of course it is an individual situation depending on that particular family’s situation but that is why the Job Centres exist, that’s why the work coaches exist, that’s why we put the support into those job centres to work with individuals their own individual situation.”
