Wales Office minister Stephen Crabb says Wales needs welfare reform as much as the rest of the UK, if not more.

His comments come as almost a half of Welsh voters questioned for a BBC Wales opinion poll say the UK government should take tougher action to force people on benefits into work.

Another 22% thought current policies were about right but 27% thought they were too harsh.

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, said people should be encouraged in to into quality employment not "low-wage, skivvy, part-time zero hours" work.
