MPs are reacting on Twitter to the Government's proposal to cap benefits passing its first hurdle in the Commons.
Conservative MP Gavin Barwell has called Labour's opposition a "big mistake" while Labour MP Chris Williamson said the Bill would "increase child poverty".
Labour just voted for benefits to increase by more than wages. Big mistake. Hard-working #Croydon families deserve better
MPs have voted in favour of a Government measure to cap benefits rises. The Work Secretary says it will save £5bn from the welfare bill.
The Department for Work and Pensions has calculated the savings that the exchequer could expect if the benefit cap passes this evening.
