View on the Streets, The: Welfare Reform

Synopsis
The Welfare Reform Bill has been hotly debated in both the House of Commons and Lords. By 2013, the government hopes to implement £18 billion in welfare cuts. We are told this will help save cash, get the unemployed back into work and it is only fair that the unemployed do not receive more on benefits than working families on a low wage. On the streets of Barking, East London, the public give their response to the proposals.(25 minutes)
