He debates with Emma Aldridge from Turn2Us, highlighting the main benefits of Universal Credit: making the system simpler for claimants and ensuring that claimants are better off in work.

Deven argues that monthly payments and direct payments are about promoting independence and eliminating barriers to work.  He argues that online claims will be a more efficient system that will free up resources in order to focus on the people that need help the most.
