    Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey has agreed to publish a series of reviews of Universal Credit after acknowledging there was “no point” in keeping them under wraps.

    The project assessment reviews for the flagship welfare reform reveal claims of bullying, harassment and discrimination, as well as concerns that changes could stop Universal Credit from achieving its aims.

    The internal Whitehall reviews, carried out between May 2012 and October 2015, have finally been obtained by the Huffington Post through a Freedom of Information request.

    Ministers initially refused to release the documents but were then forced to give them to the Work and Pensions select committee after a motion was passed in the Commons."
