I hope the ‘Safe In Town’ card will reassure residents that help is always on hand should they suddenly feel uneasy while they are out.”

Frank Field MP, chair of the committee, said: ‘The Department could straight away cut by a third the numbers of people having to rely on food banks, if it could ensure all legitimate benefit claims were paid promptly and correctly. It has made some progress in speeding up the delivery of new claims, but the five or six week wait for a first payment under universal credit could turn out to be a nightmare for some claimants. Even under the existing system there are too many mind-blowing instances in which people on their uppers are left with little or even no money for weeks on end. We will seek, therefore, to come up with a package of reforms which helps the department build on its early progress towards a more effective system.’
