Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
RE: Universal Credit:Written question - 204628
Department for Work and Pensions
Q: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether trade unions and the Trade Union Congress have been consulted on the managed migration of universal credit.
A: The Department is working with a diverse group of around 80 stakeholder organisations, including Trade Union representation, to ensure the widest possible range of insights are played into the design of Universal Credit Managed Migration. This group will evolve over time as we work with different stakeholders at different stages in the process.
Please provide the names of the "80 stakeholder organisations" and a copy of the minutes or notes for the last stakeholder meeting concerning 'Universal Credit Managed Migration' and dates of Migration related meetings since 2018 and all planned future meetings, including location and details of how to become a 'stakeholder' and to attend future UC Migration meetings?
