David Cameron defends welfare changes

David Cameron has defended the Government's welfare changes saying living on benefits has become a 'lifestyle choice' for some.

An increase in benefits capped at 1% comes into force on Monday.

In an article for The Sun newspaper, Mr Cameron said the benefits system needed to be fairer. Labour said the government needed a new economic strategy and a "proper work programme" to tackle the welfare bill.
