MP sorry for money 'wasted' on Universal Credit system

A Conservative MP on the Work and Pensions Select Committee has apologised to the taxpayer for money wasted on rolling out the Universal Credit System.

Conservative MP Nigel Mills, who sits on the Work and Pensions Committee, told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire, "We have to apologise that this money has been wasted."

However he added, "It's better to move more slowly and get it right and accept it's gone wrong than to try to hid it."
