Asked if it was true that the Government was "shelving" attempts to review housing benefit, the PMOS said that with the new Secretary of State for DWP taking office, it was natural for a new person to take the time to get their feet under the table and settle in.

Asked when the expected reforms might be expected, the PMOS said that the work was actively continuing, and John Hutton had gone in to carry on the work as fast as possible, but it was reasonable to take some time.

Asked if there was any difference in approach between the Prime Minister and John Hutton, the PMOS said absolutely not.
