Social security advisers warn that part of welfare reforms work - Turn2us

Turn2us information sheet on Universal CreditSocial security advisers have warned Iain Duncan Smith, the Work and Pensions Secretary, that part of his welfare reforms is unworkable.  This is according to reports in The Observer and The Independent yesterday.

Universal Credit is set to replace several working-age benefits starting in 2013.
