Correspondence between the Chair of the Social Security Advisory Committee and the Minister for Welfare Reform about draft regulations.
The Social Security Advisory Committee’s letter explains its views on certain draft Universal Credit regulations. The regulations set out a number of additional easements from work-search conditionality for cases where:
- a child has been exposed to circumstances that have caused distress
- there is a clear need for the responsible carer to provide sustained support and attention
The Minister for Welfare Reform has provided the government’s response to the committee’s observations.
