Jonathan Reynolds responds to Andy Street’s comments about Universal Credit cuts

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to Andy Street’s comments about Universal Credit cuts, said:

“The Conservatives have been warned repeatedly about the impact this cut will have on people’s incomes. The Government’s own analysis of this cut was that it would be ‘catastrophic’, but still it’s pushing ahead.

“Andy Street and Conservative MPs should stick up for their constituents and local economies and get on the phone to Boris Johnson to tell him to cancel their cut to Universal Credit.”
