COSLA budget comment

Commenting on today's Budget, Councillor Kelly Parry COSLA's Community Wellbeing Spokesperson said: “COSLA is delighted to see that Government has listened to what COSLA and others have been saying and has brought forward changes in the budget to address fundamental flaws in Universal Credit.
 
“While not every matter has been dealt with, we hope the steps announced today will help avoid many of the problems that tenants and claimants have been experiencing. COSLA and local authorities will continue to support tenants and claimants, and to share evidence on how things are working on the ground as we seek to work with Government to improve the design of Universal Credit.”
