David Cameron's government is planning to push ahead with a new wave of welfare cuts.The news came after tens of thousands of anti-austerity protestors took to the streets of London.

Sinn Fein deputy first minister Martin McGuinness was among the speakers at the rally.

But Conservative Ministers have underlined their determination to slash another £12 billion off the welfare bill.

That's on top of the major cuts already introduced across the water - the cuts Stormont can't agree on extending here, the cuts that have plunged the Assembly into crisis.

So how will our MLAs deal with another round of welfare reforms, and fresh austerity cuts?

Carmel Gates, president of the union NIPSA and Edwina Currie, former Tory Minister, speak to Nolan.
