Simon Duffy, Director of The Centre for Welfare Reform said:

"It is great to see the Church come out so strongly and so clearly against these shameful cuts that target disabled people and people in poverty, but which are parading as 'reforms'. This is exactly what we need when so few politicians are prepared to risk speaking out against the scapegoating and the stigma."
