Esther McVey on Freud comments about disabled people

A Conservative minster said Lord Freud's comments about wages for disabled people "will haunt" him, and they were not party policy.

Employment Minister Esther McVey told the Daily Politics: "I cannot justify those words, they were wrong."

She added that the government spent £50m annually on supporting disabled people, when she spoke to Andrew Neil on the Daily Politics about her work.
