Shadow work and pensions secretary Rachel Reeves has said Labour's policy to strip under-21s of benefits "unless they learn key skills'" is "very different" from a policy proposed by centre-left think tank IPPR last year.
In October the [IPPR] policy was all 18 to 25-year-olds, regardless of whether they had worked previously, regardless of whether they already had qualifications - A-levels, vocational qualifications, university degrees - and it was also restricting housing benefit for everybody under the age of 25.
So the policy today is a very different policy.
