Earlier today Stephen Timms criticised the Work and Pensions Secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, after he admitted that the roll out of Universal Credit will be delayed. 

Writing for the Huffington Post UK, Stephen said:

"[Today] Iain Duncan Smith admitted what everybody else has known for months but which he was still denying in the House of Commons last month. Universal Credit is massively late...Universal Credit is the government's flagship welfare reform. It has become a fiasco. Ministers failed at the outset to grasp the scale of it. Now the prime minister has failed to get a grip, or even to resolve the dispute between his Ministers. Rescuing the project is going to be tough. Today's development gives no hint that the current administration is up to the task."
