Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether she has made an estimate of the cost to the public purse of reversing the roll-out of universal credit and returning to the previous system.
Universal Credit (UC) is a £2bn infrastructure project. This will deliver £8bn worth of economic growth. A whole new benefit system is likely to require a similar level of investment as UC.
