In the news

It’s all about Universal Credit in the media this morning, as the national press gears up for an opposition day debate which will focus on the controversial welfare reform.

The Huffington Post has a piece by a woman receiving Universal Credit, in which she talks about her struggles to make ends meet.

The New Statesman runs a leader breaking down a number of flaws with the policy, which rolls up several benefits into one monthly payment.

The Metro reports that up to 25 Tory MPs could rebel in a vote on Labour’s motion later.

And the BBC has published a summary of the day’s events.

Meanwhile, The Guardian is saying Theresa May will not cave in to pressure and back down on the reforms.

On social media

There is also much talk on social media about the Universal Credit debate:
