Uni­ver­sal credit

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - OPINION -

More than 80% of North Ayr­shire Coun­cil ten­ants on Uni­ver­sal Credit are in rent ar­rears. Now the lo­cal au­thor­ity’s leader has branded the wel­fare pol­icy a “tragedy.” Labour coun­cil leader Joe Cul­li­nane said Uni­ver­sal Credit was push­ing fam­i­lies into debt, which could lead to a sharp rise in poverty, hard­ship and anx­i­ety, with £729,457 in un­paid rent.
