According to a report released by a coalition of churches, over 90 thousand of Britain’s poorest children went hungry last year after parents’ had their benefits are cut.
Last year more than a million benefit sanctions were imposed and sometimes simply because people were late turning up for Job Centre appointments. More than 120,000 of those decisions were overturned following appeals.

According to The Independent The report said: “We are disturbed that a benefit system intended to provide for the needy and vulnerable is used as a means of coercion and compliance.
“The penalties often do not appear reasonable or proportionate to the ‘failure’ that has occurred.
“If a similar system operated in a workplace, where pay was removed for a month for being late for a meeting or not achieving a target, we might reasonably expect action to be taken against the employer.”
Niall Cooper, of Church Action on Poverty, which helped write the report, added: “If you commit a crime, no court is allowed to make you go hungry as a punishment.
“But if you’re late for an appointment at the Jobcentre they can remove all your income and leave you unable to feed you or your family for weeks.”
The report was published as a former Jobcentre worked told Channel 4’s Dispatches programme, to be broadcast on Monday, that he had to “hammer” welfare claimants because of Government targets. Alan Davies, who works in Leicester, said: “They weren’t willing to look at them as human beings.”
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) said it did not recognise the figures in the report.
