Prime Minister David Cameron has pointed to more benefit cuts ahead if the Conservative party wins the next election.
Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Cameron called the housing benefit bill "far too high". He continued:
"We've put a cap on housing benefit, but I still think there's more we can do to reform our benefits system."
He promised to keep the 'triple-lock' on pensions which guarantees that they will rise by inflation or above every year, but denied that this was an example of chasing the 'grey vote'.
