David Cameron: Business can 'smash poverty'

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has said that he believes businesses can help to "smash poverty" in the UK.

At a speech in London, he praised companies like BT and Marks and Spencer who offer schemes to help people into work.

He also spoke of the increasingly "dangerous rhetoric" that suggests wealth creation is "anti-social" and has no "moral worth".
