British Government Claims Over 12,000 People Are Now Working After Benefits Cap Was Announced

Who'da thunk?


More than 12,000 people have moved into work after being told about the benefits cap, the government claims.

The cap, on the total amount of benefits that non-working people aged 16 to 64 can receive, has begun rolling out across England, Scotland and Wales.

Couples and lone parents will now not receive more than £500 a week, while a £350 limit applies to single people.
