Labour washes it hands of National Insurance safety net control

Labour is to hand over the running of National Insurance (US Social security) payments to the treasury, taking it away from the DSS (dept of social security)

The problem now arises what about Scottish tax payers contributions? It belongs to the Scots and not to London. With the DSS in Scotland robbed of its main reason for existence should the faceless wonders in Whitehall be trusted with our NI contributions, pensions and retirement?

You can see them 'investing' it for us in Londons stock market, outside of Edinburghs control and ruining the lives of millions.
