Benefit cap: coalition policy to impose £26,000 limit

The legislation to impose a £26,000 limit that a family can receive in annual benefits enters its final stages in the Commons on Monday 13 June. It enjoys Conservative support but not all Liberal Democrats are behind it.

David Cameron has repeated his determination to impose the cap in a bid to tackle the 'dependency culture'.

Adam Fleming recalls George Osborne's speech to the Conservative Party Conference and spoke to Liberal Democrat MP Jenny Willott, Lord German and welfare reform minister Lord Freud.
