The Labour MP David Miliband has made an impassioned speech in the House of Commons opposing the benefits cap.
He accuses the coalition of proposing savings of £1.1bn from the richest in society, compared with £5.6bn from those on benefits and tax credits.

This rancid Bill is not about fairness or affordability.
It reeks of politics, the politics of dividing lines that the current Government spent so much time denouncing when they were in Opposition in the dog days of the Brown Administration.
It says a lot that within two years it has fallen into the same trap.
