Peter Aldous welcomes universal credit changes

23rd November 2017

Peter Aldous welcomes changes to universal credit announced in the Budget and seeks reassurance that the Government will continue to listen to the experiences of interested organisations such as Jobcentre Plus and housing authorities.​

I welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement. Successful completion of the roll-out requires ongoing dialogue with a variety of organisations, including Jobcentre Plus offices, local housing authorities, charities, food banks and local landlords. Can he provide an assurance that he will continue to liaise and work with such bodies?

I can give that assurance. A pleasing aspect of the response to the announcement made by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor is the warm and broad support for the changes from, for example, the Trussell Trust, Citizens Advice, landlords associations and so on. Engaging closely with all those organisations and partners is key to delivering universal credit successfully.
