|Cameron Suggests Cutting Housing Benefit for Under-25s|
The British prime minister has suggested that people under the age of 25 could lose the right to housing benefit, as part of moves to cut the welfare bill.
Scrapping the benefit for that age group would save almost £2bn a year.
In an interview, David Cameron said he wanted to stop workers resenting people on benefits.
But a senior Lib Dem warned that the priority was to get young people into work, training or education to avoid "repeating the mistakes of the 1980s".
In his newspaper article, which comes ahead of an expected speech on the subject this week, Mr. Cameron said the existing system was sending out "strange signals" on working, housing and families. He called for a wider debate on issues including the cost of benefits.
