Scot Lib Dems: Scot Tories’ support for rape clause “appalling”

Responding to Ruth Davidson’s comments on child tax credits and the rape clause, Scottish Liberal Democrat equalities spokesperson Caron Lindsay said:

“The entire Tory approach to child tax credits is like something from Victorian times. 

“But their attitude to the rape clause is particularly appalling. It is degrading and humiliating that a woman should ever have to prove rape to the satisfaction of a civil servant in order to be able to feed her children. 

“Ruth Davidson’s comments are ridiculous. The Conservatives should do the decent thing and ditch this policy.”
