The last day of welfare reform @UKHouseOfLords

Today's debates cover scrapping the Social Care Fund Read here about why it will cause Britain's poorest people to spiral into debt or here about people who have used the social fund in the past and how they spent the money.

As well as the changes from CSA to CMEC find out about how this will lead to LESS absent parents paying their fair share and why #frothers support Gingerbread's campaign to have this stopped.

Keep up to date

Via the House of Lords today, at their live video stream. Or if you'd like an important bits as-it-happens text version you can follow at the Guradian's live welfare reform bill blog
