Department for Work and Pensions written question – answered on 7th July 2020.
Alert me about debates like this
To ask Her Majesty's Government what proportion of Universal Credit recipients are subject to the (1) two-child benefit limit, and (2) benefit cap, broken down by ethnic group.
The Department cannot precisely quantify the proportion of households by ethnic group that are affected by these policies since recording of ethnicity on benefits administrative data is voluntary and, as such, not sufficiently reliable.
