Tory Universal Credit architect Iain Duncan Smith demands Theresa May pours £2billion into the benefit

Ex-welfare slasher Iain Duncan Smith urged the Prime Minister to finish the job of reversing £4billion a year in cuts to the all-in-one system

Theresa May must plunge £2billion more into Universal Credit, the benefit’s Tory architect demanded today.

Ex-welfare slasher Iain Duncan Smith urged the Prime Minister to finish the job of reversing £4billion a year in cuts to the all-in-one system.

He told MPs he was "pleased” the government put £2.1billion back into UC last year after massive pressure from Tory backbenchers.

But he said that only went “halfway” to restoring the benefit - and it needs the rest of the cash to fulfil its original aim of fighting poverty.

The ex-Cabinet minister told the Commons Work and Pensions Committee: "I would first and foremost like to see the money restored to Universal Credit in its entirety.

"I ultimately would love to see the whole lot go in.”
