Migrants are to be questioned about their English language skills and what efforts they have made to find work before they are able to claim income-related benefits, the Government has announced.
It said a "more robust" test is being rolled out at jobcentres across Wales, England and Scotland this week.
In order to pass a habitual residence test, migrants will have to answer more individually tailored questions, provide more detailed answers, and submit more evidence before they will be allowed to make a claim.
For the first time migrants will be quizzed about what efforts they have made to find work before coming to the UK and whether their English language skills will be a barrier to them finding employment.
