Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has called Conservative plans to rip £12 billion from the welfare bill ‘unfair, unwise and inhuman’.
Speaking in Parliament, he accused chancellor George Osborne of choosing to attack the poorest families under the guise of economic necessity.
“We will not let the Conservatives through choice, or Labour Party through their silence, unpick our welfare system”.
Tim Farron also accused Labour of giving in to the Conservatives’ narrative and said their position on the bill was ‘shameful’. 184 Labour MPs did not vote against the Conservative welfare cuts.
