Politics Live panel on employment rates, in-work poverty and benefit cuts


Writer Will Self asked Conservative MP Chris Skidmore why he couldn’t accept in-work poverty was rising during a panel discussion on employment levels, low pay and benefit cuts.

In response, Mr Skidmore said more people were in work and that people were better off in work and “with a purpose in life than on the dole”, an answer that Novara Media journalist Ash Sarkar called “insulting”.
