Key points from Mr Byrne's speech will include:
- The biggest cost will come from extra job seeker allowance claims because of the slow take-up of the youth contract.
- Current targets will be missed by 92 percent which will cost the Treasury by £457 million.
- Implementing universal credit will cost £300 million, failures by Atos £287 million and work programme £140 million.
- The bedroom tax will cost £102.5 million.
- Rising fraud and error cost the Treasury £140 million.
Liam Byrne is expected to propose Labour focus on the costs of "delivery problems", such as the cost of implementing universal credit, before they tackle benefits:
The taxpayer is facing bills of an extra £1.4 billion because of the "chaos" at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) who are ushering in huge changes to the benefit system, Labour will say.
The low take-up rates for youth contracts, rising fraud, problems in the delivery of work capability assessments and the cost of implementing universal credit will all be criticised in a speech by Liam Byrne.
Shadow work and pensions secretary will claim bills for Iain Duncan-Smith's reforms will run into the next Parliament.
Mr Byrne will repeat Labour's call for a bankers' bonus tax to fund a jobs guarantee for young people.
