Work and Pensions Secretary has signalled his intention to cut expenditure on disability benefits through further reform to the welfare system.
Stephen Crabb said he wanted to go further than the £12 billion welfare cuts set out in the Conservative manifesto and “re-frame discussion” around disability welfare reform.
The announcement comes just under two months since Mr Crabb said the Government had “no further plans” for specific welfare cuts.
Mr Crabb, who replaced Iain Duncan Smith in the role in March, said he would set out a green paper on further proposed changes to disability benefits later this year.
“The measures that have either already been legislated for or announced get us to the £12 billion [welfare cuts planned in the Conservative manifesto],” he said.
