Welfare reforms could leave system more vulnerable to fraud, say MPs | Politics | guardian.co.uk

MPs have raised fears that the government’s huge welfare shakeup will leave the benefits system more vulnerable to fraud.

A report by the communities and local government committee highlighted concerns about universal credit, which will be implemented nationally from October and replaces a string of benefits such as housing benefit and child tax credits.

The committee highlighted concerns raised during an inquiry into the changes that the IT system under universal credit will have trouble distinguishing between genuine and fraudulent claims.
