Citizen's income not the solution to welfare state problems

28 April 2017

The Work and Pensions Committee publishes report on Citizen's income.

Chair's comment

Commenting on the publication of the report Chair of the Work and Pensions Committee, Frank Field MP, said:

"A universal Citizen’s Income would either require unthinkable tax rises or fail to deliver its objectives of simplification and a guaranteed standard of living. There are problems in the welfare system, but CI is not the solution to them. Rather it is a distraction from finding workable solutions."
