PM Sticks To His Guns On Housing Benefit Changes As Miliband Attacks Policy Shambles

Despite earlier reassuring MPs that legislation would not be rushed through on this issues, the Prime Minister insisted that plans to change Housing Benefit would not be scrapped.

At a stormy PMQs, Labour Leader Ed Miliband accused the Coalition of introducing measures that would leave thousands of people at risk of losing their homes and called the policy a 'shambles'.

Despite his show of public defiance, Mr Cameron and some of his ministerial colleagues have privately conceded that many people will have to leave their homes as a result of the changes being proposed.

So much for the Prime Minister's promises during the election to protect the vulnerable and most needy.
