Newly-elected leader Tim Farron has confirmed that the Liberal Democrats will vote against the Government's Welfare Bill.

Making the announcement, Tim said:

"The truth is the Tories do not have to cut £12bn from welfare: they are choosing to.

"The Liberal Democrats will always stand up for families. We will not let the Conservatives, through choice, and the Labour party, through silence, unpick our welfare system."
