The Sun - Tories rap shake-up

Wednesday, 5 July, 2006

TONY Blair's shake-up of Britain's welfare system was branded a"dampsquib" by the Tories last night.

The overhaul -published yesterday -will fail to take ONE claimant off incapacity benefit.

The Government has set up instead a £ 300million Pathways To Work scheme to help those on sick benefit find work.

Tory spokesman David Ruffley warned that existing claimants would be "left out in the cold".
