Shake-up in benefits is a 'noble cause' says MP
FAILING to push through a radical revamp of the benefits system would be "too awful to consider" according to Gloucester's MP.
Richard Graham hailed the controversial shake-up a "noble cause" in a Commons debate, which he insisted would have the support of his constituents.
He highlighted the case of a young mother from Kingsholm. She found under the existing system she would be much worse off if she took a part-time job than if she stayed on benefits.
Mr Graham said: "Above all, the project is designed to provide strong incentives for everybody to return to work. It is not poorly thought out and there is no serious risk of it descending into chaos."
