One of our top priorities is to reduce the number of people-nearly 5 million-on incapacity, lone parent or jobseekers benefits.

We will reform the benefits system to make work pay, reassess the position of people on incapacity benefit and introduce the Work Programme, a single, integrated package of support, to give people the personalised support they need to find work.
