Tories: Labour benefits cap could rise to £54k

Labour's plans to reform the benefits cap could see it rise to up to £54,000, Sajid Javid will say today.

The Culture Secretary is due to say that Labour will be prepared to "slap taxpayers in the face" with welfare changes by altering the Tory's £26,000 benefits cap. The Tories say this is down to including some rents in benefits in more expensive parts of London, such as Kensington and Chelsea. Labour have dismissed the claims and said housing benefit is already included in their calculations.

Mr Javid told the Sun: "Labour still stand for dependency and benefits as a lfestyle choice. We will do anything we can to prevent Labour turning the clock back."


Nick Clegg and David Cameron have allowed for Liberal Democrat and Conservative MPs to work together on a joint policy prospectus for the coalition in the second half of this parliament.
