David Cameron: 'don’t complain about welfare cuts, go and find work'
Robert Winnett, and James Kirkup
David Cameron said that living on welfare had become an acceptable alternative to working and suggested that benefit payments were too easy to receive.
He spoke as the Government faced serious opposition to the plan to cap the maximum benefit payments that can be received by any household at £26,000. The House of Lords is seeking to block the policy.
The cap has been set at the same level as the average family's earnings and ministers insist that it is unfair that taxpayers must subsidise those receiving more from the state than typical employees earn.
