PM facing fresh battle with senior Tories over benefits squeeze and public spending cuts

Quick Summary

Liz Truss is facing a fresh battle with Conservative MPs over a potential benefits squeeze and cuts to public spending, after already being forced into making a policy U-turn.

Asked if cuts to benefits are the next battle, he replied: "Well, I hope not because I hope the government has clearly started listening".

While an official decision on benefit payments has still not been made, Welfare Secretary Chloe Smith said one "will be taken in due course".
