Universal Credit: getting it to work better IfG Mar 2020 "the issue of historical debt could damage Universal Credit’s reputation further"
Universal Credit PAC Oct 2018 "The introduction of Universal Credit is causing unacceptable hardship and difficulties for many of the claimants it was designed to help."
Rolling out Universal Credit NAO Jun 2018 " .. the project is not value for money now, and its future value for money is unproven."
Universal Credit: From disaster to recovery? IfG Sep 2016 "looks at the failure and potential recovery of Universal Credit"
