Chair writes to NAO and DWP on Universal Credit "red lines"

11 October 2018

Chair of the Committee, Rt Hon Frank Field, has written to DWP and the NAO with questions on the further rollout of Universal Credit, to new or existing benefits claimants:

“I have today written to the NAO asking it to advise the Committee on the tests DWP must set and meet before it contemplates extending Universal Credit further.

I have also requested that the Minister appear before us urgently to explain the Government’s preparedness for the managed migration of claimants of existing benefits onto UC, in view of widespread concerns about the approach the Government is taking.”
