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:

We need to tackle these delivery problems head-on before they eat up even more public money.
Because three years into this Government, their promised welfare revolution has collapsed because of a failure in basic delivery.
