Cabinet Office minister says it's 'very regrettable' Universal Credit has wasted so much money.
A Cabinet minister has admitted that the implementation of the Universal Credit system was "pretty lamentable" in its first two years.
In highly critical comments, Francis Maude told ITV News it was "very regrettable" so much money had been wasted.
The Conservative Cabinet Office minister, who had to send in troubleshooters from the Government Digital Service to salvage the system, denied he'd fallen out with the Work and Pensions Secretary, Iain Duncan Smith.
But he refused to endorse Mr Duncan Smith's twin track approach in which the old and new systems run alongside each other.
