Social Development Minister Anne Tolley has just returned from representing us at the Battle of the Somme commemorations in the UK and France.
It was also a chance to check out Britain's attitude to welfare reform and how ours stacks up.

But when it comes to improving how we protect our vulnerable, any help would be better than nothing.
Minister of Social Development Anne Tolley joined Mark Sainsbury, filling in for Paul Henry, this morning.
