The Welfare Cap: Who voted against It?

House-of-Commons

Labour’s rebellion over George Osborne’s new cap on welfare spending was underwhelming at best.

The number of politicians voting against the measure was significantly lower that many expected – a grand total of 13.

At a time when many of their constituents are suffering the effects of benefits cuts, clearly some still regard Osborne’s attempt to perpetuate a false divide between “strivers” and “scroungers” as the lowest form of politics.

Here is a list of the 13 Labour MPs who voted against the cap:

Diane Abbott

Ronnie Campbell

Katy Clark

Michael Connarty

Jeremy Corbyn

Kelvin Hopkins

Glenda Jackson

John McDonnell

George Mudie

Linda Riordan

Dennis Skinner

Tom Watson

Mike Wood
