Question Time: Tory voter berates Amber Rudd over tax credits

16 October 2015 Last updated at 10:49 BST

A Tory voter in the audience of the BBC's Question Time has launched an impassioned attack on Conservative minister Amber Rudd over tax credits.

But the woman's comments went un-answered as the panel moved on to talk about the "reported chaos in Labour's policy-making".

Under the government's plans, the earnings level above which tax credits are withdrawn will be lowered from £6,420 to £3,850, and the rate at which the benefit is lost as pay rises will be sped up.

Ministers argue the impact of the cuts will be mitigated by the new National Living Wage and higher tax thresholds.

Labour says three million families face losing an average of £1,000 a year.
