This week a Committee of MPs are going through the Welfare Reform and Work Bill in detail. The Bill includes a number of very concerning provisions including changes to Employment Support Allowance, the freezing of many working age benefits and the lowering of the benefit cap. As well as working in coalition with disability charities through the Disability Benefits Consortium Carers UK has been pressing for specific provisions to try and mitigate some of the impact on carers.
