Citizens Advice Bureau on benefit and welfare changes

The loss of £700 a year could leave a choice of heating the home, going on holiday or buying food for children, the deputy chief executive of the Citizens' Advice Bureau has said.

Mike Dixon claimed the planned cut in welfare would have a "huge impact" but was "not a very sophisticated approach" and it could hit more employed people than those out of work.

On Tuesday, MPs are to vote on government plans to put a 1% cap on annual rises in working-age benefits and some tax credits.
