Employment Minister Mark Hoban has defended the Government's plans to limit the amount of benefits families can receive.
Speaking to Daybreak he said: "Those people who are on benefits should face the same choices as those who are in work and this cap does that.
"The best way for this cap to affect families regardless of the number of children, the best way to avoid its affect, is actually to get into work."
