To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many universal credit claimants in employment have been sanctioned in the most recent three-month period for which data is available.

Universal Credit provides us with the opportunity to support people to progress, and we are building the evidence about what works, most substantially through a large-scale Randomised Control Trial (RCT).

This trial tests different degrees of in-work support and conditionality by supporting people to progress by providing work coach support and setting mandatory requirements to make sure that individuals take reasonable action that should help them to earn more where appropriate.

The following link provides figures for the data collected so far on sanctions for in work claimants:

www.gov.uk/government/statistics/in-work-progression-trial-update-april-2015-to-october-2016

This shows that up to November 2016, 319 sanctions had been applied to 15,455 trial participants, approximately 2%.

Further statistical information regarding the number of sanctions and suspensions for in-work claimants within the randomised control trial will be published in summer 2018.

So, at Last, You have got a Part-Time Job; But this Bastard Government from Hell still wants MORE!

"we are building the evidence about what works"

As when any policy falls flat on its face they come out with the above bullshit. :lol: :evil:

One thing the ssp club are aware of is that as wages are so stupidly low people really do need to be doing 2-3 jobs to actually exist, except for the ssp club of course,all is rosy in their garden's!! :evil:

This is the scary part of Universal Credit for anyone who only wants to `get by` through finding a part time position and accepting that they can pay their weekly bills and live a life in poverty just keeping their head above water. I know when I was claiming JSA, I only looked at part time work and I only did that due to losing my ESA claim and claimed JSA (stupidly) during that gap between an ESA fit for work decision and my appeal, which thankfully, I won. But like most people in the working related group of ESA, I can never truly relax knowing that I will have ongoing assessments and constant fights on my hands.

If one day I do end up on Universal Credit (and lets face it, that`s their plan for us all) I won`t be agreeing to any of their `help` tactics if I`m pushed into applying for jobs I know I can`t possibly do while I am still suffering from ongoing ill health.

It seems gone are the days when we could find a part time job paying £120 a week, still claim full housing benefit and could close our JSA claim. :( Universal Credit prevents that freedom.
