Jon Trickett response to Amber Rudd’s appointment as DWP Secretary

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to Amber Rudd’s appointment as DWP Secretary, said:

“After enforcing Theresa May’s hostile environment in the Home Office, Amber Rudd will now be in charge of the DWP’s hostile environment for disabled people and the poorest in society.

“With Universal Credit in absolute shambles, appointing a disgraced former Minister who was only recently forced to resign for her role in another scandal is a desperate choice by a weak Prime Minister.”
