Tories plan £19 per week benefits cut for working age claimants

We have no way of knowing how these cuts will be made.

But it could be a combination of measures such as abolishing the work-related activity component of ESA; removing the lower rate of DLA care and/or mobility for working age claimants; making the points system for PIP much harsher; reducing the percentage of rent that housing benefit covers . . . and much more.

But whilst we can’t be sure how the cuts will be achieved, we can be absolutely certain of the additional misery and desperation they will heap on already struggling claimants.
