Benefit cap to hit 330,000 children

The government’s own impact assessment shows more than 330,000 children from low-income families in England will be hit by plans to reduce the benefit cap. It estimates that single mothers will be hit hardest as a group by the cap. The DWP estimates that the cap will save £300m in  2017/18, rising to £480m in 2021. But it admits that it has not yet modelled the costs of supporting those families affected.
