    Only got as far as page 16 but, interesting how they keep going on about the need to move away from a remotely administered telephone based service as it is “difficult to make robust and fully evidenced discretionary decisions” and because it means …challenges for decision makers around the supply of corroborating evidence.

    Pity they don’t realise those challenges will instead be applied to non discretionary decisions re applications for the housing element of UC.

    I can’t find in this report which level of local authority this duty is being devolved to – or is that still undecided?

    Upper tier only – no intention to devolve to districts BUT the county could devolve to districts if it wanted to.

    see para 68 on page 21
