Owen Smith MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to Nicky Morgan’s comments on Question Time that cuts to disability benefits announced in the Budget are a ‘suggestion’, said:
“Nicky Morgan was either too ashamed to admit cuts to disability benefits are Tory policy or she was signalling the start of a sharp u-turn.
"Either way, she and the rest of the Tories are quickly realising there’s no justification for these cruel cuts.
"They should now do the fair, sensible thing. Scrap these cuts completely and spare hundreds of thousands of disabled people who’ve already suffered enough under the Tories.”
