Rachel Comments on Universal Credit Delays


Rachel, commenting as Iain Duncan Smith’s repeated promises to deliver Universal Credit, ‘on time and on budget’ have been broken, with an astonishing £40 million written off so far, £91 million written down and only a handful expected to claim Universal Credit by 2015, said:


“Now we learn that Iain Duncan Smith’s officials are warning of further delays, more wasted taxpayers’ money and bickering between Ministers. While families are facing a cost-of-living crisis, it’s completely unacceptable that millions have been wasted because of failures by David Cameron and Iain Duncan Smith to get a grip of their flagship Universal Credit scheme.”
