Iain Duncan Smith on Universal Credit introduction

One in three job centres will be using Universal Credit by the spring of 2015, and "pretty much everybody" on it by 2019, says the work and pensions secretary.

Iain Duncan Smith said there was "not a problem" with the changes to welfare, as he told Andrew Neil about its introduction in north west England, who asked him the changing dates for the reform.

They also also looked at whether the HM Treasury had signed off the business case for Universal Credit, food bank use, plus changes to housing benefits, payments to people with disabilities, and Tory policy on child benefits.

Their interview followed a Sunday Politics film on the introduction of Universal Credit
