When IDS resigned and Stephen Crabb took over at the DWP, he said he had no plans for further cuts to Disability Benefits. This site warned at the time that a Tory saying he or she has no plans to do something almost inevitably means that he or she has plans but knows they need to be delayed for a while.

Sadly, it seems the warning was appropriate because Stephen Crabb has told the Work & Pensions Select Committee that he will be publishing details later this year on how to make further cuts to spending on Disability Benefits because he doesn’t think the reforms already announced go far enough.

I hate saying, “I told you so" but what else is there to say?
