Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

On the recommendation of the Cabinet Office I have been advised to ask the question below of your good selves and thus under the FoI Act could you please answer the following question.

FOI Reference:FOI327116 29/11/2018 Dear JAMES SPENCER-GRAY I refer to your request where you asked: With regards to the current Government and past Governments flagship Welfare Reform Programme, could you please confirm that such reforms can only effect those members of our society who are actually in receipt of a cash benefit and thus can not effect anyone not in receipt of any cash monies from the state.
I am writing to advise you that following a search of our paper and electronic records, I have established that the information you requested is not held by the Cabinet Office.
You may wish to try contacting the Department for Work and Pensions at this link: [email address] who may be able to help you with your request.

Kind regards

James Spencer-Gray

Yours faithfully,

James Spencer-Gray

The DWP have avoided answering a straight question and that is what is state welfare, have the never heard of the Beveridge report.
Logically a simple answer would be the state payment of monies to an individual.
Why cant they say so?
What are they trying to conceal?

The web page the DWP refers to consists of 100's of different pages, fundamentally all relating to Universal Credit, so a simple question is being avoided by burying it in documentation
