Therese Coffey – 2022 Comments on the Cost of Living Payment

The comments made by Therese Coffey, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, on 22 June 2022.

With millions of the lowest-income households soon seeing the first of two cash instalments land into their bank accounts, we are taking action to directly help families with the cost of living.

This one-off payment totalling £650 is part of our £37 billion cost of living support package that will put an extra £1,200 into the pockets of those most in need.
