Submission to Liberal Democrat review of social security

February 2016

CPAG submitted a response to the Liberal Democrat parliamentar review of social security, following our oral evidence. The response covers:

  • Analysis and recommendations on benefit delivery, looking at issues that can be resolved immediately without fundamental reform;
  • A critique of Universal Credit, based on its stated aims, to assess the current direction of travel;
  • High-level discussion of structural issues in social security which the review may wish to consider when framing its analysis.
