Work and Pensions Questions: Universal Credit – BBC Panorama

Recently the BBC undertook a thorough investigation into Universal Credit and all their filming was done in Flintshire. It showed how people in our communities have been forced into poverty by this fundamentally flawed system of social security.

We were one of the first areas in the country to see Universal Credit rolled out and I have seen first hand the horrendous effects it has on people’s lives. The new Secretary of State hasn’t seen the BBC investigation and I urged her to watch it immediately to learn of the utter chaos it is wreaking on people’s lives.
