Jonathan Reynolds responds to result of vote on Labour’s Universal Credit Opposition Day debate

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the result of the vote on Labour’s Universal Credit Opposition Day debate, said:

“It is disappointing that the Conservative Government refused to vote with Labour to provide families with certainty and secure our economy. They can still do the right thing and drop their plans to cut Universal Credit.

“Britain is facing the worst recession of any major economy because of the Government’s incompetence and indecision. Families cannot be made to pay the price.”
