The Taxpayers' Alliance have supported the Government's new benefits cap which is being introduced across Britain today, saying it is "fair" to both taxpayers and benefits recipients.
Matthew Sinclair, chief executive of the charity, said: "The people funding the benefits system through their taxes should never find themselves subsidising a lifestyle for others which they cannot afford for their own families."
"Ministers are right to be simplifying the benefits system and removing the perverse incentives that have condemned people to a life on hand-outs."
