Abstract

The Welfare Reform Bill is to be debated by the House of Lords later today. One of its most controversial features is a benefit cap of £26,000 for those out of work. Tim Leunig takes a close look at what this cap will mean in reality for those on benefits, and finds that people could be left with as little as 62p per day after basic expenses.
