SDLP Councillor Seamus Doyle has hit out at Government’s ‘work for benefits’ plan.

Councillor Doyle said: “This latest step by the Conservatives is an attempt to penalise the unemployed rather than acknowledge the failings of the Government’s economic policies.”

He went on: “The lack of empathy displayed by the Tories is quite breath-taking.”
