Labour: Benefits cap is brutally unfair to families
The Government's household benefit cap will be rolled out in parts of London today.
The welfare reforms will begin in the four boroughs of Bromley, Croydon, Enfield and Haringey.
Speaking to Daybreak, David Lammy, Labour MP for Tottenham said:
I think this is brutally unfair to families, these are often women with three or more children and they now face eviction, hardship, the loss of over £100 a week for many of them, for no fault of their own.
Labour MP 'accepts that words were not appropriate'
A spokesman for Chuka Ummuna has apologised if "lighthearted" comments the shadow minister made in 2006 caused offence.
The spokesman told the Daily Mail: "Though his user account on the site still exists, he has not posted a thread on the site for many years, since long before he was elected as a Member of Parliament."
"In terms of the post from 2006, these were comments made on a private social network well over half a decade ago.
"Though light-hearted in tone and context, and made long before he became an MP, Chuka accepts the choice of words used were not appropriate and apologises if any offence may have been caused."
Home Secretary's plan for Abu Qatada 'ripped apart'
This is an extremely serious and disappointing judgment which rips apart Theresa May's strategy for deporting Abu Qatada and contradicts her repeated assurances to Parliament that her approach would get him swiftly on to a plane.
According to security experts, the Home Secretary and the courts, this is an extremely dangerous man, and we all want him to be deported to stand fair trial abroad as soon as possible and to be held in custody in the meantime.
