‘Saving the Universe’ takes time and is very complicated
The Public Accounts Committee highlights concerns over the roll-out of Universal Credit concluding the programme still has ‘a long way to go’.  The Committee says it remains "disappointed by the persistent lack of clarity and evasive responses by the Department to our inquiries, particularly about the extent and impact of delays". The estimated completion date for the roll-out of the Universal Credit digital service is six months later compared to when the PAC examined the programme last year.
