City MP attacks lack of plan on benefits

He said that Labour politicians had 'no plan' when it came to dealing with benefit restructuring.
He said: "It has literally no plan for how much the benefits uprating should be to replace the government's 2.2 per cent for carers and those with disabilities, and one per cent for certain child tax credits.
"Their idea of moral compassion was running up debts whose interest alone is more than the entire education budget.
