National Housing federation say Universal Credit will push 1 Million working people into debt.

A new report by the consultancy firm Polis for the National Housing Federation has estimates that nearly a third (29%) of working-age social housing residents, the equivalent to one million people, risk falling into debt if all their benefits are paid to them directly in a single monthly payment. Copies of the report can be accessed at http://www.housing.org.uk/publications/find_a_publication/general/social_tenants%E2%80%99_finances_and_v.aspx.
