Labour's Yvette Cooper: Benefit changes are 'immoral'

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has warned changes to the benefit system could drive children and families into poverty.

He said society had a duty to support the "vulnerable and in need".

The Department for Work and Pensions said tough decisions were necessary to keep costs of welfare sustainable.

Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that Archbishop Welby was right to speak out, and described the government proposals as "immoral".
