The Prime Minister’s Implementation Unit (PMIU) report on the experience of vulnerable claimants in Universal Credit has been redacted in line with Section 36 (Prejudice to the effect conduct of public affairs) of the Freedom Of Information Act. We have reviewed the PMIU Universal Credit vulnerable claimants report and uphold that there is evidence to support the application of a Section 36 exemption to redact the report.
