A Tory MP has said her party risks betraying its values as she voiced her opposition to tax credit cuts.
Heidi Allen suggested ministers were losing sight of the difficulties of working people in their "single-minded determination to achieve a surplus".
Urging help for affected families, she said "true Conservatives had compassion running through their veins".
The government is standing by the changes, saying these and other reforms will save taxpayers £15bn a year.
Why are the Conservatives doing this when everything is otherwise going so well for us? Why drive working people back into the arms of Labour?
