Four mothers win court case over Universal Credit

By Aubrey Allegretti, political reporter
Four women have won a High Court challenge over the amount of benefits payable to them – on the day Amber Rudd said Universal Credit should be more compassionate.
But after announcing her plans to "reset" the benefits payments system, the Work and Pensions Secretary admitted that she has not yet spoken to the Chancellor about her idea to end a benefits freeze next year.
Asked what her plans might cost the Treasury, she said: "The benefits freeze is scheduled to come to an end next year - I haven't had any further conversations with the Chancellor so I'd better not say anything too definitive at this stage but it's certainly my view that it should come to an end at that stage."
