Ministers ordered to find new ‘non-fiscal’ ways to combat cost of living

The Guardian says cabinet ministers have been ordered to come up with new “non-fiscal” ways to combat the cost of living, in a tacit acknowledgment that the government’s spring statement failed to match the enormity of the crisis.

Boris Johnson said the government would renew efforts to promote schemes with low take-up, including tax-free childcare of about £2,000 a year that about 1.3m households are yet to claim.

About 850,000 eligible households are also not claiming pension credit, which can be worth over £3,300 a year.
