More people at my surgeries today who were due a payment this morning, but nothing came. No help from helpline. Advance payment refused. Struggling to feed their children and heat their homes over the weekend. When will the government care about these people?

As a mental health professional, I fully support calls to . The shame and anxiety this is causing is putting 10,000’s of people’s mental and physical health in jeopardy.

is designed not to work. It cannot be paused and fixed. It needs to be stopped, scrapped and reformed into a system that actually helps people. Let's start with changing the awful name. This person should still be on ESA.

Eileen Evason - most people aren’t ‘trapped in worklessness’, they’re in low paid, insecure work and need benefits to get by.

advisers/experts: what questions do you have about the announcements yesterday? Will see if we can pass them on to MPs/Peers when ministers provide more detail today.

Roughly 4.5-5 million people in the UK claim tax credits, either working or child. I do hope they're all ready for the world of work coaches, job searches and sanctions

Government announced reforms today. Mounting evidence has shown UC is still not living up to these its 3 key objectives. Reforms do nothing to help tens of thousands of families stuck in 6 week waiting period over Xmas. More necessary changes needed Minister.

story. This so called problem would have occurred at Christmas 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. In fact it is just the system working as intended, adjusting to changes in household income. We've not seen problems with this in the past and won't this year.

Listening to Ministers boast about how great the new 5 day benefit loans are makes me wonder if benefit loans (instead of payments) aren't being quietly normalised

Been following tweets from Welfare Reform Delivery Group from Belfast. Looks like a good discussion. Hope to see loads of you in Westminster on Tuesday when we are meeting Welsh MPs to talk ?

Trailed moneybox story on completely wrong. Shows no understanding of how UC works, reclaims either not required or light touch. Estimates wildly wrong, based on flawed understanding of data. All those due will be paid for Christmas as happened last year.

Of welcome measures to ease waiting time for first UC payment set out by the 2 week housing roll-on could be most important
