UK Prime Minister David Cameron will give a statement to the Commons today in which he will address the fallout over cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith's shock resignation.

David Cameron is expected to answer questions on the issue which has plunged his party into crisis during his planned statement to MPs on last week's migration summit in Brussels.

The Conservative Party has been engulfed by bitter infighting since Mr Duncan Smith sensationally quit as Work and Pensions Secretary on Friday Cheap Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra , saying proposed cuts to disability benefits were "a compromise too far".

Leading party figures have traded blows over Mr Duncan Smith's motives for stepping down.

While several have publicly backed him, others have suggested Mr Duncan Smith, who is campaigning for Britain to leave the EU, may be trying to cause "maximum damage" to the party leadership ahead of the EU vote.

In an interview with Sky News on Sunday, Mr Duncan Smith insisted his resignation had "absolutely nothing to do with Europe" Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Plus , saying that claim had been put out there as an attempt to discredit him.

In a blistering attack on David Cameron and chancellor George Osborne, he reiterated that he stepped down over the "deeply unfair" Budget.

He accused the Government of putting wealthy Tory voters ahead of the working poor and vulnerable and warned it was at risk of creating a divided society.

Speaking earlier on Sunday to the BBC's Andrew Marr, Mr Duncan Smith suggested Mr Osborne and Mr Cameron targeted the working age poor because "it doesn't matter because (those people) … don't vote for us".

He said that the changes and Mr Osborne's refusal to hit rich pensioners, who traditionally vote Conservative, was leading to a loss of balance across the generations.

It was the £1.3bn annual cuts to Personal Independence Payments (PIPs) Cheap Nike Air Max Plus 97 , which would have affected 640,000 disabled people, contained in the Budget, that was the last straw, he said.

The Government Cheap Nike Air Max Plus TN , which said it had signalled a climbdown over the cuts ahead of Mr Duncan Smith's resignation, is expected to confirm the U-turn today.

The new Work and Pensions Secretary, Stephen Crabb, will tell the Commons in a statement that the curbs to PIPs have been abandoned.

The £1.3bn annual saving will, however Cheap Nike Air Max Plus Mens , still have to be found from the Department of Work and Pensions budget.

Reports that the fallout over IDS' resignation have sparked the Tories' worst civil war in decades are dominating Monday's front pages, with The Mirror claiming the party leadership is "damned".

According to The Times, the divisions have even engulfed the party's two most powerful figures.

It reports Mr Cameron has told a Cabinet colleague that Mr Osborne had "messed up" and was responsible for the row over disability cuts.

It is alleged that Mr Cameron had used a four-letter word to describe Mr Duncan Smith during their telephone conversation about his resignation on Friday evening. Mr Duncan Smith has only said the conversation was "robust".

Meanwhile, Energy Secretary Amber Rudd said in a TV interview on Sunday that she resented Mr Duncan Smith's "high moral tone", found his "manner and approach really disappointing" www.cheapmaxplus.com , and said she found it upsetting that he had "broken ranks".

EDINBURGH, Britain, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- With China's growing investment in space science and technology and its increasing market demand for satellite applications, countries like Britain are looking to work more closely with China in the area.

"China is a huge country and satellites are perfect in providing the data unique for agriculture Cheap Nike Air Max Plus Online , for climate, for air quality," Chris Lee, head of International Space Partnerships at UK Space Agency, told Xinhua.

He made the remark on the sideline of the 12th UK-China Space Workshop on Space Science and Technology Cheap Nike Air Max Plus Shoes , which was held in Edinburgh this week.

"From China, we will then have an opportunity to take those capabilities out to the rest of the world. So if I were to pick a particular area. I think it would be the applications of satellites," said Lee. "And because the UK has some key strength in this area as well, I think we are natural partners in focusing on how you use satellite data rather than how you build satellites themselves."

The two sides have made efforts to promote satellite applications in some specific areas.

The STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council) Newton Agri-Tech Fund was launched in 2015 under the auspices of the UK-China Space Science Joint Laboratory. This joint initiative looks to use the UK's expertise in remote sensing and modelling in the area of agricultural technology to work with and aid the Chinese farming community.

The 12-million-pound (15.68 million U.S. dollars) fund is spread over five years and will make use of the breakthroughs in satellite imaging, remote sensing and modelling to help provide facilities and technologies that will support research driven Cheap Nike Air Max Plus Sale , decision making tools for farmers and policy makers.

It provides the chance for Chinese and UK researchers to work together to exchange ideas, and make closer ties across the cultural and social boundaries.

"I think......both the UK and China have a very strong belief that satellites can be used for governments around the world to improve the well being of their citizens," said Lee. "We both share a philosophy called space for smarter government, and I think we and China want to showcase how space is useful to support the UN's sustainable goals."

Satellite applications in agriculture is just one part of the two sides deepened cooperation in space science.

"Both China and the UK see space science and technology as one very important and interesting area, and have encouraged cooperation between the two sides' colleges and research institutions Cheap Nike Air Max Plus ," said Lijun Xu, Dean of School of Instrument Science.
