Delay in rollout ignores the well documented flaws in the Government's flagship welfare reform.

SNP MP Neil Gray has slammed Amber Rudd as she confirmed 10,000 people would go through a managed migration pilot with no assurances from the Secretary of State that any changes would be made to the deeply flawed system.

When questioned by the SNP MP in the House of Commons today, the Secretary of State was unable to commit to making any changes before the summer but confirmed the managed migration pilot would go ahead for thousands of people, adding to the million and a half already forced onto Universal Credit.

Serious concerns have been raised over the Tory government’s flagship welfare policy, with the SNP leading calls for the roll-out of the system to be urgently halted and fixed so that it provides real value and support for those claiming social security.
