Gloucester MP attacks lack of plan on benefits
A LACK of alternative proposals to the changes in the benefits system has been criticised by Gloucester MP Richard Graham in a parliamentary speech.
He said that Labour politicians had not come up with an alternative when it came to dealing with benefit restructuring.
He said: "It (Labour) 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.
