Committee publishes ‘damning’ new Universal Credit evidence – UK Parliament

Post by Admin on Sat Oct 28, 2017 3:36 pm

Committee Chair Frank Field MP [has called] evidence submitted to the Commons Work and Pensions Committee by Halton Housing Trust the “most damning” he has ever read on what he describes as Department for Work and Pensions “maladministration.”

Food bank referrals double
The Trust has accumulated over £400,000 of arrears as a direct result of the rollout of Full Service Universal Credit. This means that just 18% of its tenants owe 55% of all its arrears.Over the last 12 months the number of referrals the Trust has made to local food banks has more than doubled.
