Britain is about to face its hottest days on record. The web is telling me just where to fry in London on Monday
On Monday morning I’m holding a meeting with the DWP and around 20 influential people from the financial services industry looking at what we can do to help people through this cost of living crisis.
High on the agenda is to get those who aren’t claiming it and should be, claiming pension credit
I am pleased to see that the Pensions Minister is adopting the same robust approach to that meeting as i am!

Working not shirking, excellent, well done, glad to hear its going ahead.
I do hope though that everyone is sensible, in their attitude to a dress code for example. In the 1976 heatwave my father still insisted on wearing a jacket and tie to the Isle-of-Wight beach, “Standards should always be maintained!”.
My uncle, who we holidayed with, considered it a personal triumph when my father reluctantly agreed to remove his jacket.
But not his vest.
There is a time and place for the vestiges of the raj attitude to a dress code but this is not it.
