Motion text

That this House notes with deep concern that the system of implied consent which existed under the legacy benefits system has been removed under universal credit; believes that this will make it more difficult for claimants with complex needs to make claims to universal credit; further believes that this will have a particularly detrimental impact on claimants with complex needs living in rural communities; is concerned that the process of managed migration will be even more difficult without the process of implied consent; and calls on the Department for Work and Pensions to make the necessary changes to universal credit to allow implied consent to be restored.
