Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will make an assessment of the risk of a link between the introduction of universal credit and levels of domestic violence.
No such assessment is planned. There are safeguards in place in universal credit to ensure that we have the ability to split payments between partners in cases of domestic violence, allowing each claimant to receive a separate payment.
