Tories Cut Disability Benefits

An article on the Mirror website talks about the cuts the Government have made to the Personal Independence Payments fund, which is designed to help disabled people live independently and replaces the Disability Living Allowance. Figures show that 44% of people who were previously receiving the Disability Living Allowance have either been given the Personal Independence Payments at a lower rate than they were previously receiving, or have outright been rejected for Personal Independence Payments.

The article can be found here on the Mirror website.
