The Department for Work and Pensions’ (DWP) flagship benefit Universal Credit has been at the centre of a political storm. But parliament has now weighed in with a huge report. It makes for yet more damning reading.
The DWP: Universal Credit under the spotlight

The House of Commons Library produced a report into Universal Credit ahead of Labour’s Opposition Day debate on Wednesday 17 October.

The contentious new benefit replaces six old ones with a single payment. Currently, in what’s known as “live service”, Universal Credit has been rolled out in certain areas for new claims. Soon, the DWP will move everyone onto “full service“, including those on old benefits. This process was due to start in 2019. But on Tuesday 16 October, the DWP said that the rollout was being delayed. The BBC reported that the department was also making changes to the benefit. By June 2018, around 15% of people who the benefit would eventually affect were on it.

The report looks at the impacts of Universal Credit on claimants. While it doesn’t draw its own conclusions, it uses analysis by other organisations to create an overview of the benefit. And it shows how flawed it has become.

And so it goes on....... Report after Report, Each and every Revelation Worst then the one before;
They are read, Tut Tutted over; And stored in a dark basement never to see the light of day again.
