Holding answer received on 07 November 2014

Under Universal Credit we are, for the first time, supporting people who are in low-paid work to increase their earnings. We are currently trialling a variety of different approaches following a public call for ideas in 2013, in order to learn what kind of support is most effective. This will inform future decisions of the types of support we might introduce nationally.
