The Chancellor George Osborne claimed today to be ending the "something for nothing culture" when he announced cuts worth £10 billion to the welfare system in his speech at the Tory conference today.
But for young people and families already feeling the pinch of cuts to their benefits, those words may sound hollow.
ITV News' Political Correspondent Romilly Weeks reports from Birmingham:
The Chancellor's surprise plan for swapping job rights for shares is praised as "innovative", but what does it mean for the average worker?
The Chancellor told the assembled delegates that they were still, "all in it together," and that he was right to cut the 50p tax rate.
The Government is to press ahead with plans to slash an extra £10 billion from the welfare budget by 2016-17, the Chancellor has said.
