Disappointing and deeply frustrating news from the Supreme Court this morning.

However, the court has acknowledged that these rules, while lawful in principle, are causing severe hardship to thousands of families and children up and down the country.

I hope the UK Government will take this into account and, at the very least, look again at the decisions to exclude alternative sources of funding and applicants prospective income.

In the meantime, I will continue to work with fellow MPs to bring abut changes to these ludicrous rules in Parliament.
