Ministers are preparing to move the system of paying Jobseekers' Allowance (JSA), currently claimed by 1.58 million people, largely online later this year in a major cost-cutting drive.Err, shouldn't the latter have been fully considered, and decided, before even thinking of preparing for the former?
The aim is to make 80 per cent of JSA payments online within months, with a view to boosting the figure over time to 100 per cent.
Ministers are considering the best way of making sure someone is available for work if they no longer need to attend Jobcentres.
