IDS: Welfare Reforms Won't Cut Benefit Bill

Iain Duncan Smith has admitted that controversial welfare reforms due to come in next week will not cut Britain's benefit bill.

The Work and Pensions Secretary said that, unlike other European nations, the "reality is that this country is not cutting welfare" because he is simply "managing" the increase in handouts.

He added that "all those on benefits will still see cash increases in every year of this Parliament".
