There were protests against cuts to benefits across the Midlands last month. In the first two weeks of April Birmingham City Council received almost 2,000 applications for Discretionary Housing Payments - 50% more than for the whole of the first quarter of the previous financial year.
Councillor John Cotton says the reforms are making some people's lives worse.
