Welfare reform in the Lords

Welfare reform in the Lords

The Lords are debating the welfare reform bill. The first important debate is expected in 6 minutes (4.45pm) and there will be a vote at 5.45pm. On the Listowel ammendment which will enable young people who are unable to work to qualify for ESA.

The second important debate on the time limiting of ESA will then take place.

The key vote on the amendment exempting cancer patients from the one year ESA limit is expected at 6.45pm.

Labour is hoping to get crossbench and Liberal Democrat support for this and hopes will trigger a government defeat.

Somehow i don’t think a defeat is in the air…..
… Oops i was wrong…..
