Benefit cap is “immoral”

The Observer carries an interview with Liberal Democrat MP Sarah Teather who says the Government’s plan to impose a £500-a-week cap on benefits is “immoral” and “divisive”. Ms Teather, formerly the coalition minister for children and families, says the policy will have devastating effects on many thousands of children whose lives will be disrupted as their parents are forced to uproot from their homes. She adds that there will be a “reverse Jarrow march” in the run up to next April as families leave London, in search of new homes.
