MP fights back tears in Commons during plea over deaths linked to benefits issues

An MP fought back tears as she read out the names of people who have died after experiencing difficulties with the benefits system.

Labour’s Debbie Abrahams spent almost three minutes reading out more than 20 names of those affected, and referred to how some died after “taking (his/her) own life after being found fit for work” or through illness after losing their benefits.

At one stage, colleagues intervened to give Ms Abrahams time to compose herself and finish the list.
