Welfare Reform Bill — Second Reading — 9 Mar 2011 at 18:59

The majority of MPs voted to support the Welfare Reform Bill at its second reading. Support at this stage indicated support for the key principles of the bill and allowed it to continue on the path towards becoming law.

Parliament's webpage on the bill[1] states:

  • The Bill provides for the introduction of a 'Universal Credit' to replace a range of existing means-tested benefits and tax credits for people of working age, starting from 2013.

as well as:

  • introduces Personal Independence Payments to replace the current Disability Living Allowance
  • restricts Housing Benefit entitlement for social housing tenants whose accommodation is larger than they need
  • up-rates Local Housing Allowance rates by the Consumer Price Index
  • amends the forthcoming statutory child maintenance scheme
  • limits the payment of contributory Employment and Support Allowance to a 12-month period
  • caps the total amount of benefit that can be claimed.

The explanatory notes to the bill[2] stated:

  • The Government estimates the net effect of the Bill on benefit expenditure will be as follows:·savings of £960m in the financial year 2012/13;·savings of £2,510m in the financial year 2013/14;·savings of £3,870m in the financial year 2014/15.
  • In addition there is a further £2bn set aside in the Spending Review to cover the costs of implementing Universal Credit.
