Labour's welfare challenges

Labour Deputy Leader Harriet Harman says growth in the economy needs to be addressed as part of welfare reform.

Speaking to Eddie Mair on the Andrew Marr Show, Harriet Harman called on the government to introduce a work programme.

She declined to spell out specific changes Labour would make to the welfare system but hinted there would be more of a link between payments and previous contributions.
