Sir: The Government's decision to press ahead with Tory cuts in income support for lone parent families is unnecessary and against the grain of Labour's commendable Welfare to Work programme. When the proposed measures of job creation and childcare provision work through, backed by a decent minimum wage, then lone parents will for the first time have genuine opportunities to work to support their families. But it will be at least two years before these policies are operating effectively.
