It does make strategic sense from a DWP perspective to go with TC cases first (even more so if their system is broken!!) because JSA(IB) cases are already under their work requirement regime and ESA(IR) cases are the most controversial and are more likely to attract a transitional protection – the 55% earned income taper in UC means most ‘simple’ households will get more than the TC/HB currently received (until sanctions/deductions get applied at least).
Have to say I am with Peter on this – I’ll only fully believe it if/when it starts!
