Disability Cuts

These changes to PIP could see around 160,000 disabled people stripped of their financial support.

But also shocking to hear a Tory MP suggest these changes would ensure that benefits went to people who are “really disabled” rather than those who suffer from chronic psychological disorders.

At a time when charities and campaigners are trying to end the stigma around mental health issues Mr Freeman’s comments are completely misguided and counterproductive.

I have supported a “prayer” motion in the House of Commons to try and secure a debate on this issue and I will be working with other SNP MPs to stop this legislation.
