The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) could be about to come unstuck. Because Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has now got involved with the ongoing Universal Credit scandal. And in one motion, it could bring the benefit to its knees.
The DWP vs Corbyn?

Corbyn has tabled an Opposition Day debate on Universal Credit. While the benefit has often been debated in parliament, this time it’s different. Because if parliament passes Labour’s motion, it will be binding.

The text of Labour’s motion, as seen by The Canary, reads:

That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, that she will be graciously pleased to give directions that the following papers be laid before Parliament: any briefing papers or analysis provided to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions since 8 January 2017 on the impact of the roll-out of Universal Credit on recipients’ and household income and on benefits debts.

Labour is forcing this after work and pensions secretary Esther McVey had to admit that millions of households could be up to £200 a month worse off under the benefit. Its idea is to push McVey and the DWP into a corner; much like it did with the Brexit impact assessments. So Labour may now force the DWP to reveal exactly what’s been going on behind the scenes with Universal Credit. And it can’t happen too soon.
