Never more relevant.
Stephen Crabb, secretary of state for work and pensions, starts work this week on the revision of government benefits policy.
We hope the DWP team will draw his attention to the new edition of Citizens Advice ‘Advice Trends’.
The report that collects and presents the problems brought to Citizens Advice has never been more relevant.
Mr Crabb needs the best frontline information about the problems most commonly experienced by people across the country.
Advice Trends covers problems with benefits, tax, employment and many other issues. Secretary Crabb will see the cause of most benefit problems in the past 2 years was Personal Independence Payments.
