Charities who work with Universal Credit claimants have allegedly been told to sign gagging orders to protect the reputation of the Department for Work and Pension’s (DWP) and welfare chief Esther McVey.

The Times reports that at least 22 charitable organisations, with DWP contracts worth £1.8million, have been told to sign “gagging clauses” as part of their work with Universal Credit claimants.

The contracts require charities to “pay the utmost regard to the standing and reputation” of the Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey MP, adding the charities must “not do anything which may attract adverse publicity” toward the DWP.
