Sarah Wollaston on Conservative housing benefit policy

A Conservative MP has said she does not support her party's policy on withdrawing housing benefit for young people.

Sarah Wollaston was challenged by Lord Ashdown, and told him: "That is a policy that I don't actually support" and added that MPs of all parties had policies they did not agree with.

And she told the former Lib Dem leader: "I get a bit fed with Liberal Democrat politicians pretending that somehow they're not part of a coalition when things are uncomfortable."
