Asked about the Archbishop of Canterbury’s comments on personal debt, and was the Prime Minister concerned that young people were going into too much debt, the PMS replied that it was the case that people struggling with personal debt were already being helped by a range of measures introduced by the Government. The Department for Business had introduced a face to face debt advice project with more than 500 debt advisors recruited and trained, and more than 66,000 people had been helped to date. At the moment we were also undertaking the biggest ever nationwide crackdown on loan sharks and illegal lending. Therefore this was something that the Government took very seriously, and there were measures in place to try and assist those who may be at risk of falling into indebtedness.
