'I'm no slouch on welfare reform' - Nick Clegg

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has attacked the welfare reform plans of Conservative coalition partners calling it "Chinese-style family policy" on The Andrew Marr Show.

The Liberal Democrat leader criticised plans to limit benefits to the first two children and cut housing benefit for under-25s, saying he was not in favour of "penalising the young".

Mr Clegg told Andrew Marr he was "no slouch" on reforming the benefits system and supported a move to extend restrictions on welfare for immigrants from EU countries.
