This morning Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith launched the consultation paper ‘21st Century Welfare’

He explained that “this is not a question of whether or can we reform it but it should be about what we reform”

“This is a real opportunity to reform our antiquated welfare system”

IDS has taken his lead from Beverage’s principles to get rid of

  1. WANT,
  2. DISEASE,
  3. IGNORANCE,
  4. SQUALOR and
  5. IDLENESS

The options for consultation on reforming the welfare system are:

  • A universal Credit (page 19)
  • Disregards and Tapers (page 21)
  • A single unified Taper (page 22)
  • Single Working Age Benefit (page 24)
  • The Mirrless Model (page 25)
  • Single benefit/negative income tax model (page 25)

The consultation begins on 30th July 2010 and runs until 1st October 2010.  benefit.reform@dwp.gsi.gov.uk
