Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Stephen Timms has called the Government's welfare reforms a "damp squib".
Speaking to Daybreak he said: "This government is making a complete hash of introducing the new system, the computer system is nowhere near ready, we were promised a welfare revolution, what we're actually getting today is a damp squib, a tiny number of people being affected."
