Liberal Democrat response to leaked Conservative plans to cut welfare by £12bn

Responding to the leaked Conservative plans to cut welfare by £12bn, Liberal Democrat General Election Campaign spokesperson Lord Scriven said:

“The election campaign has barely kicked off and already the Tories are showing their true colours.

“Conservative plans for £12bn worth of welfare cuts means £1,500 cut for 8m households.

“To build a stronger economy and a fairer society, the welfare system should be designed to help people get on in life. 

“But, surprise, surprise the Tories are hell-bent on punishing disabled people and working families with crippling welfare cuts.”
