Matt visited us on Monday 4th December interested in all the challenges facing us, such as Universal Credit,  and how he might help us as we serve his constituents.

We should qualify the article by saying that the government do appear to have listened and are allowing 100%  advance payments to be made to claimants so that as little as a week may occur as a delay.

We wait to see the real impact. Sanctions seem to continue to reek havoc for many people.
