Migrants 'must live in UK for four years' for some benefits

The prime minister has set out plans to curb welfare benefits for migrants from the EU.

David Cameron said EU migrants should have to wait at least four years before receiving benefits such as tax credits or council houses.

He insisted the changes, which he will seek if he is elected in May, were an "absolute requirement" in future talks over whether to stay in the EU.
