Benefits cheats should be shamed by having their photo pinned to every lamppost in their street, an official at the Department for Work and Pensions said.
Benefits cheats cost British taxpayers more than £1 billion a year and Terry Moran, Director General, Chief Operating Officer at DWP has said he wants to disgrace these bogus claimants.
Mr Moran is in charge of the Universal Credit program, a new single payment, as part of the Government's welfare reform plan.
It is due to replace several different benefits in 2013 including Employment and Support Allowance, Housing Benefit, Child Tax Credit, Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance, and Working Tax Credit.
Universal Credit is also intended to encourage claimants to work, by allowing them to keep more of their benefits when they start to earn.
