Chancellor George Osborne defends benefits changes
Chancellor George Osborne has defended benefits and tax changes in a speech, saying "this month we will make work pay".
The chancellor claimed in a speech to supermarket workers that nine out of 10 working households would be better off.
The shake-up, including cuts to housing benefit for some social housing tenants with a spare room and alterations to council tax, took effect on Monday.
