Government response treats Committee “like dirt”

The Work and Pensions Committee has published a follow up report to the government’s response to its own report on support for childcare as a barrier to work under Universal Credit.

The follow up emphasises the considerable time and effort that witnesses to the original inquiry, including several single parents, put into giving evidence and coming up with constructive ways to improve Universal Credit childcare support.

It describes the government’s response as “skimpy and disappointing” and demands the government provide a new, second response, “which matches the consideration the Committee employed in an attempt to help parents to move into work.”
