Claiming that Universal Credit will cut child poverty is only half the story

22 Feb 2011, by in Society & Welfare

I have a post up at Left Foot Forward examining the Government’s assessment that Universal Credit will lift 350,000 children out of poverty. This may well be true, but the claim fails to recognise that the Government’s programme of welfare cuts will lead to at least the same number again moving into poverty before Universal Credit takes affect.
