Iain Duncan Smith has admitted that controversial welfare reforms due to come in next week will not cut Britain's benefit bill.

The Work and Pensions Secretary told the Daily Telegraph that the "reality is that this country is not cutting welfare", adding that "all those on benefits will still see cash increases in every year of this Parliament".
