Strata title report to be handed down today by the DWP is a copy of a briefing document which has been handed over to Mr Osborne by Labour MPs, including Tessa Jowell and Michael Dugher, which is described as a “pre-emptive report”.
“This briefing document appears to be part of a campaign to force through a cut in benefits, with the implication being that ministers would not consider the cuts properly,” the article notes.

A Treasury spokesman said: “The welfare system is set up to help individuals and families manage their budgets properly and to reduce the chances of them ending up on benefits.
“The Conservative party plan for welfare reform is based on a credible analysis which was produced to establish that the welfare system would provide £8bn a year less over its lifetime than under current rules.
“It comes with a commitment to deliver up to 2.2 million less people on benefits in the next Parliament and it also includes savings for the welfare state. We have a system in place to stop a lot 바카라사이트of these people from getting benefits at all.”
