TEN YEARS PAST

Evening Times - - NEWS -

UK GOVERN­MENT plans to abol­ish a dis­abil­ity ben­e­fit would plunge al­most 10,000 vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple in Glas­gow into poverty, claimed an MSP.

Bill Kidd, Glas­gow SNP MSP, said: “This is a clear sign of how lit­tle the UK Govern­ment con­sid­ers its im­pact on Scot­land and, in par­tic­u­lar, vul­ner­a­ble Scots.

“To get rid of this ben­e­fit would be a ham­mer blow to el­derly and dis­abled Scots.”
