Welfare reforms are 'sociological cleansing' says Bryant

Labour shadow justice minister Chris Bryant and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg have debated the latest welfare reforms in the House of Commons.

In the debate, Chris Bryant said he thought that welfare reforms would move 200,000 people out of areas such as London, into commuter suburbs. He also added that he thought the reform bill could disenfranchise such people and was akin to "social engineering and sociological cleansing".
