UNIVERSAL CREDIT: DWP confession is horrific


So the DWP impact statements over the last 10 years have never looked at the 5 week payment delay, how can this be, when they are bound to have an impact on claimants.

If Impact Statements are supposed to cover all impacts, which they are, surely not including all impacts makes the Impact Statements ‘not fit for purpose’.

As a full assessment of Universal Credit has not be conducted, then this benefit should not be being rolled out.

With these facts it should be deemed illegal for the payment and rollout of Universal Credit to be continued, if not, the Advance Payment should be counted as compensation.
