Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Ian Duncan Smith has called benefit rises 'unfair'.

Over the last five years they have risen by 20% while wages in the private sector have only risen by 12%.

Mr Duncan Smith released these figures in advance of a vote in parliament on breaking the link between benefits and inflation.
