RECIPIENTS of Spain’s anti-poverty benefit have seen a severe lag in payments as 1 million people apply for the provision in just four months.

Debate has since started between Spanish authorities over the effectiveness of the benefit’s implementation.

Only half of the applications have currently been processed and 136,000 households are due to receive the benefit imminently.

Projections predicted that 850,000 households would be eligible for the provision.

Spain’s social security minister, Jose Luis Escriva, has said the ginormous public response just shows the neccesity of the measure.

Meanwhile the People’s party branded the administration ‘chaos’ and suggested it failed ‘thousands of particularly vulnerable families.’
