Bumper Graham and David Vance clash over latest wave of benefit cuts

Jul 21, 2015, 08:46 AM

The House of Commons has backed a new wave of welfare cuts. The changes include lowering the benefit cap to £20,000 outside London. What does that mean? It means households won't be able to claim more than £20,000 a year in benefits. Is that fair? And what about N Ireland? Stormont still can't agree on the previous wave of welfare reforms. It can't agree for example on whether the benefit cap here should be £26,000 a year. DUP MP Sammy Wilson last night told the House of Commons the latest wave of cuts "probably spells the end of the Northern Ireland Assembly". Commentator and blogger David Vance supports welfare cuts Trade unionist Bumper Graham opposes them
