Peter Aldous calls on Government to work with local council on universal credit teething issues

9th January 2017
Peter Aldous calls on the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions to urgently resolve teething issues raised by Waveney District Council about the roll-out of full-service universal credit.

T3. Waveney District Council has been working proactively with the Department for Work and Pensions to support the roll-out of full-service universal credit. Although the council has committed considerable resources to the work, local people are still facing challenges. Can the Secretary of State assure me that his Department will urgently seek to resolve those issue that have been raised constructively by the council and other authorities through the national steering group? [908098]


I am happy to give my hon. Friend that assurance. He and I have exchanged correspondence on this—he may not yet have received a letter from me offering a meeting with my hon. Friend the Minister for Employment. We absolutely want to work through any teething issues with local councils.
