As the row rumbles on about who was responsible for proposed disability benefit cuts that have now been dropped, the question many are asking is how damaging will this situation be to the government?
According to ITV's Political Editor Robert Peston the situation could be very damaging, here he explains why:
Iain Duncan Smith tells ITV News' Robert Peston his resignation was intended to push the government into pursuing a fairer welfare policy.
Former Work and Pensions Security accuses government of making 'arbitrary cuts' which he says damages the party and the country.
Conservatives fractures show with claim and counter-claim by ministers from within the DWP about the conduct of Iain Duncan Smith.
