Welfare bill 'to be cut by £4bn', says Chancellor George Osborne

The government is planning to reduce the annual welfare bill by a further £4bn, Chancellor George Osborne has told the BBC.

He will give details of the savings, which follow an £11bn cut made in June, in October's spending review.

The BBC's Nick Robinson caught up with the Chancellor to put to him the fiscal concerns that he had heard from the public during his tour of the country.
