“I conclude that LCTS should not be moved into Universal Credit at this time. No-one has prepared for such a move, which would be complex and disruptive to both central and local government at this critical phase in the Universal Credit timetable. I also believe it would cause unnecessary financial risk to councils and bring confusion and disruption to LCTS recipients”.
