Commenting on the House of Lord's vote on Tax Credits, Archbishop Philip Tartaglia said:

 

 

“I hope the Government will be mindful of the concerns raised by members of the House of Lords in the debate on tax credits. I urge them to adopt a compassionate and humane approach when amending the benefits system remembering always the vulnerabilities of so many dependent on it.”
