DWP: Reforms will not make people homeless

A spokesperson for the Department of Work and Pensions defends the government's benefit cap plans:

"Welfare reforms will restore integrity and fairness to a system that is failing the very people it was supposed to help. We cannot carry on with a situation where people on benefits can receive more in welfare payments than hard working families and where a life on benefits robs people of achieving their potential. There is no reason for anyone to be made homeless by our reforms."
