Supreme Court decision on benefit cap 'disappointing'

Responding to today's Supreme Court’s ruling on the benefit cap, Rob Gowans, Social Justice spokesperson at Citizen’s Advice Scotland said:

“This will be so disappointing for the families involved and for families across the country. Citizens Advice Scotland remains concerned about the hardship the benefit cap has had on people who have come into their local CAB for advice about it.

“The majority of people affected by the benefit cap are lone parents with three or more children, it’s simply not an option for them to take on a job or move to a smaller home. The UK Government should take the opportunity to reconsider the policy in its entirety.”
