A new poll has shown that 69% of UK citizens oppose cuts to benefits.

The survey, by Ipsos MORI, found that there was a large majority against cutting benefits in real terms when specific benefits were named.

Chancellor George Osborne gave his Autumn Statement last week and set a below-inflation increase for in-work benefits of 1% each year until 2016.
