BREAKING: High Court rules Government acted 'unlawfully' in Universal Credit case
The Government acted 'unlawfully' in denying two men a 'top up' on their Universal Credit claim to account for their severe disability.
A judge in London, who was told during a hearing in May that the men have been left unable to meet many of their basic needs, handed down his judgement this morning.
Well done to all involved in bringing this case to trial.
URGENT response, To all Scope members the Mirror newspaper needs yours and our help NOW
Stop the migration and rollout of Universal Credit and replace it with a fairer system
Universal Credit is harsher on people both in and out of work, and some families could end up £200 a month worse off.
The Mirror are demanding a halt to the expansion of UC and for a review to take place. We say there are three options:
- Redesign UC to be fit for purpose
- Axe it in favour of the old system if UC is unfixable
- Introduce a brand new system
