Autumn Statement: 'I'm helping workers', says Osborne

The Chancellor has denied claims that changes to tax and benefits will cause working families from poorer backgrounds to suffer.

George Osborne told the BBC this was not the case, and added: "I am taking action to help all those who want to work hard and get on."
