This evening, the House of Lords have defeated the government and voted in favour of amendments to the Welfare Reform Bill.

1. Young disabled people will still be automatically eligible for ESA. Lord Freud and co. had wanted to abolish that.

2. ESA for those in the WRAG* group will now be time limited to TWO years not one. Still not great but better half a loaf than no bread
