Direct action by DPAC members at stations up and down the country to dump the Metro are gathering pace. Every Wednesday since May the DWP have bought space in the Metro to spin stores about Universal Credit. The DWP has spent over £250,000 of public money to buy advertising space.

The Disability Benefits Consortium has now reported the DWP to the advertising watchdog for “deliberately misleading” promotions for Universal Credit dressed up in advertorials in the free newspaper.
