Peter Taylor-Gooby, Research Professor of Social Policy,  comments on the problems surrounding the government’s Universal Credit rollout and its viability.

Professor Taylor-Gooby fears that poverty will continue to rise, regardless of whether Universal Credit is abandoned or not, because the benefits that make it up have already been cut to the bone.

See University News Centre for Professor Taylor-Gooby’s expert comment.
