Andy Street said : "We need to understand in detail the financial triggers which lead to homelessness for those on low incomes. “The top reason for homelessness is ending of assured shorthold tenancies, often due to rent arrears. “Unexpected expenses or changes to benefits can tip those on low incomes into financial difficulties and homelessness. “This is why monitoring the rollout of Universal Credit, and making changes where necessary, is so important to the policy’s overall success”. Mr Street made the comments in He warned: “There are thousands of others in the West Midlands who are living in temporary accommodation, sofa surfing or living in hostels”. Universal Credit was only one of the issues raised by the mayor. Others included the need to “increase the supply of affordable, accessible housing”, to provide work for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and to ensure charities and businesses knew what they could do to help. Mr Street also argued that the Government was listening to concerns. He said he had worked with charities to lobby Ministers and, “after looking at proposals in detail and listening to the sector”, the Government agreed that all 18-21 year olds would continue to have access to Housing Benefit. Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street speaks during the annual Conservative Party Conference (Image: Getty Images Europe) But the implied criticism of Universal Credit chimes with warnings issued in stronger terms by a range of inquiries and charities. Universal Credit replaces six existing benefits - Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit - with a single payment. The Government says the new benefit is designed to help people get into work. It is also designed to ensure people have a higher income when they do work, while under the old system people could find that they lost so much in benefits that getting a job, or working more hours, didn’t make economic sense. However, critics say that the benefit has led to an increase in poverty. Claimants have to wait up to five weeks for their first payment, and while they can get an advance payment much sooner than this, the advance is a loan that must be repaid. MPs say some constituents have suffered hardship because they received incorrect payments. Read More And for some people, the total amount received has simply been cut. In a damning report earlier this year, the Trussell Trust said Universal Credit helped explain why foodbank use had shot up. The charity distributed 119,946 three-day emergency food parcels in the West Midlands between April 1 2017 and March 31 2018. This was up from 41,396 in the 12 months up to March 31 2013 - before the new benefit. The National Audit Office, the official spending watchdog, warned in June that Universal Credit may cost taxpayers more than the complex benefits system it replaced. Prime Minister Theresa May defended Universal Credit (Image: PA) It published a report warning the Government has no way of measuring whether the new system is achieving its goal of getting more people into work. At least 270,000 claimants are expected to receive their payments late in 2018, likely to cause them serious financial problems, the National Audit Office said. At the moment, residents in most parts of the country who start claiming benefits, or whose circumstances change, are put on to Universal Credit. In 2020 the Government will begin moving large numbers of claimants who receive the older benefits onto the new system. Read More Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised Universal Credit in the House of Commons this week. Theresa May, the Prime Minister, responded by arguing that the Government had made changes to the benefits system when needed. She said: “What we actually see in our country today is absolute poverty at record lows, more people in work than ever before, youth unemployment almost halved and wages growing, and that is because of the balanced approach that we take to our economy - a Conservative Government delivering for the British people”. Mrs May added: “What we have done is made changes as we have rolled out Universal Credit, but I am afraid we had a Labour party that would not support the changes we were making to Universal Credit. We have listened and we have made changes. “It is time that the Labour party recognised that Universal Credit is ensuring that more people are in work in this country and that absolute poverty is at record lows. That is a system that delivers for people and encourages them into work - a simpler system that is better for the people who need to use it”.

Andy Street said : "We need to understand in detail the financial triggers which lead to homelessness for those on low incomes. “The top reason for homelessness is ending of assured shorthold tenancies, often due to rent arrears. “Unexpected expenses or changes to benefits can tip those on low incomes into financial difficulties and homelessness. “This is why monitoring the rollout of Universal Credit, and making changes where necessary, is so important to the policy’s overall success”. Mr Street made the comments in He warned: “There are thousands of others in the West Midlands who are living in temporary accommodation, sofa surfing or living in hostels”. Universal Credit was only one of the issues raised by the mayor. Others included the need to “increase the supply of affordable, accessible housing”, to provide work for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and to ensure charities and businesses knew what they could do to help. Mr Street also argued that the Government was listening to concerns. He said he had worked with charities to lobby Ministers and, “after looking at proposals in detail and listening to the sector”, the Government agreed that all 18-21 year olds would continue to have access to Housing Benefit. Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street speaks during the annual Conservative Party Conference (Image: Getty Images Europe) But the implied criticism of Universal Credit chimes with warnings issued in stronger terms by a range of inquiries and charities. Universal Credit replaces six existing benefits - Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit - with a single payment. The Government says the new benefit is designed to help people get into work. It is also designed to ensure people have a higher income when they do work, while under the old system people could find that they lost so much in benefits that getting a job, or working more hours, didn’t make economic sense. However, critics say that the benefit has led to an increase in poverty. Claimants have to wait up to five weeks for their first payment, and while they can get an advance payment much sooner than this, the advance is a loan that must be repaid. MPs say some constituents have suffered hardship because they received incorrect payments. Read More And for some people, the total amount received has simply been cut. In a damning report earlier this year, the Trussell Trust said Universal Credit helped explain why foodbank use had shot up. The charity distributed 119,946 three-day emergency food parcels in the West Midlands between April 1 2017 and March 31 2018. This was up from 41,396 in the 12 months up to March 31 2013 - before the new benefit. The National Audit Office, the official spending watchdog, warned in June that Universal Credit may cost taxpayers more than the complex benefits system it replaced. Prime Minister Theresa May defended Universal Credit (Image: PA) It published a report warning the Government has no way of measuring whether the new system is achieving its goal of getting more people into work. At least 270,000 claimants are expected to receive their payments late in 2018, likely to cause them serious financial problems, the National Audit Office said. At the moment, residents in most parts of the country who start claiming benefits, or whose circumstances change, are put on to Universal Credit. In 2020 the Government will begin moving large numbers of claimants who receive the older benefits onto the new system. Read More Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised Universal Credit in the House of Commons this week. Theresa May, the Prime Minister, responded by arguing that the Government had made changes to the benefits system when needed. She said: “What we actually see in our country today is absolute poverty at record lows, more people in work than ever before, youth unemployment almost halved and wages growing, and that is because of the balanced approach that we take to our economy - a Conservative Government delivering for the British people”. Mrs May added: “What we have done is made changes as we have rolled out Universal Credit, but I am afraid we had a Labour party that would not support the changes we were making to Universal Credit. We have listened and we have made changes. “It is time that the Labour party recognised that Universal Credit is ensuring that more people are in work in this country and that absolute poverty is at record lows. That is a system that delivers for people and encourages them into work - a simpler system that is better for the people who need to use it”. In his ConservativeHome article, Mr Street warned fellow Tories: “As Conservatives, we must make good on our promises to reduce homelessness and rough sleeping in the 2017 Election Manifesto.
