    Labour would look to ending benefit cap – Debbie Abrahams

    The benefit cap is something that Labour would look to ending, Debbie Abrahams has said. The idea, which has not yet been costed, would stop the household cap of £20,000 per household outside of London. The cap in London is £23,000. Parents must work for at least 16 hours a week to avoid the cap. Getting rid of the benefit cap was not in Labour’s general election manifesto.
