Well good old Gordon Brown or was it Laudy Fraudy in the New Labour govt who tried to stop the DWP from issuing these because the DWP always gets things right as they stated in a Parliamentary question response.

 

Uproar followed by a U-Turn occurs rather quickly iirc!

 

Well after the DWP quietly stopped collecting statistics on their food bank referrals.... just like all that other data they claimed they didn't collect but was released after massive fight even ignoring the Information Commissioners Rulings.

 

They've actually gone and done it! Stopped all referrals to food banks... and who did they announce this too?

 

Originally found this via a Reddit post pointing me to here http://www.leweseye.co.uk/social-security-benefits/dwp-bans-local-foodbank-referrals/?

 

Now gaining national news traction and hopefully we can add to the traction as quite frankly I'm beyond appalled!

They haven't referred to food banks for probably well over a year, they should signpost you to your LA who will refer you.
