  • "But before we get the champagne corks popping, it's worth spelling out the following:-

    The Treasury has budgeted for the cut in the benefit, worth £160m a year.
    This money will have to be found from somewhere and there is a significant danger that it will be found from disabled people's pockets.
    The government is already planning to replace DLA with the less generous personal independence payment and it could be that the £160m is found from making that reform even less generous (apart from for people in residential care)."
