Ruth George challenges Esther McVey on Universal Credit

Esther McVey stooped to a new low recently with her excuse for not answering my question on why so many people are wrongly being transferred onto Universal Credit – claiming I’d only just come into the debate. Mr Speaker put her right but she still didn’t answer the question.

I collared her afterwards when she admitted she hadn’t understood my question so I’ve agreed to send an explanation. The Secretary of State owes an answer to the millions of families losing thousands of pounds from being transferred onto UC far too quickly.
