Mark Littlewood appears on BBC Radio Bristol and BBC Points West

Mark Littlewood appeared on BBC Bristol to discuss upcoming changes to the benefits system.

Mr Littlewood argued that considering the average household contributes £8000 to the welfare state, it is reasonable to ask for it to be policed. This colossal bill makes up the largest part of government expenditure so it is fair to ensure that people are properly claiming.

"Those people paying in need to be absolutely assured that the money is properly used," stated Mr Littlewood.
