Scottish Government Swamped By Effect Of Tory Welfare "Reforms"

A NEW report into the effects of Tory welfare reform show the human "tragedy" brought on Scotland by Tory welfare reforms, experts have said. The comments come in response to a new Scottish Government 2018 Annual Report on Welfare Reform which show rising poverty and destitution as a result of the austerity regime at Westminster. The report shows, among other examples of the decline of the welfare system, that the share of children living in relative poverty is increasing and that benefit sanctions are increasing under Universal Benefit.
