Former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith MP, who is the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, is visiting a company in Northampton today.

Mr Duncan Smith will be meeting Conservative MP for Northampton North Michael Ellis at Goodwill Solutions, in Moulton Park, later today.

Goodwill Solutions is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that aims to help the local community by running projects such as the Back to Work programme, training ex-offenders, armed service personnel, former homeless and disadvantaged youths for employment in the logistics sector.

Over the past four years Mr Duncan Smith has led a number of reforms to the benefit system, including the introduction of the so-called ‘bedroom tax’.
