Life on benefits 'no longer an option'
James Tapsfield and Paula Fentiman
"A life on benefits will no longer be an option for people after a shake-up of the welfare system, Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said today.
"He said job vacancies will no longer be filled by foreign workers while "millions" of Britons stay on benefits because radical welfare reforms due to be unveiled by the Government will provide financial incentives.
"Mr Duncan Smith is to launch the Welfare Reform Bill at an event in London today with Prime Minister David Cameron.
"The proposals include replacing most existing benefits with a universal credit - designed to ensure people are always better off when they are employed, and close the loophole where some couples receive more living apart."
