Commenting on the Conservative Government ditching its plans to extend a benefits cap on families of more than two children, Scottish Labour's Social Security spokesperson Mark Griffin MSP said:

"The two child cap, and the rape clause that comes with it, is abhorrent and the Conservative Government still has not gone far enough in only stopping its extension as part of Universal Credit.

"Scottish Labour want this cruel policy ended in its entirety, which is why we are calling on the Scottish Government to use the upcoming budget to protect people in Scotland from its impact.

"The Scottish Tories must urgently explain if they will continue to defend a policy their own ministers are now rowing back from."
