Peter Aldous calls on Government to address problems with universal credit in Waveney

21st November 2016
Peter Aldous calls on the Government to urgently address technical problems experienced with the roll out of universal credit in Waveney.

Universal credit was rolled out in Waveney on 25 May. I am sorry to report that at present it is not going well and many vulnerable people are finding themselves in difficult situations. Can the Secretary of State assure me and my constituents that everything is being done to address these technical issues as soon as possible so that universal credit can play the role for which it was intended?

I am always happy to talk about any technical issues that arise as we roll out this important benefit, and if my hon. Friend wishes to bring them to my attention in detail, I will happily talk to him about them.
