Jonathan Reynolds responds to Trussell Trust report on the impact of cut to Universal Credit

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the Trussell Trust’s report on the impact of the Government’s proposed cut to Universal Credit, said:

“It is completely wrong that parents are worrying if they can make ends meet and have enough to feed their kids because the Government plan to cut their income by £1,000 a year.

“Britain is facing the worst recession of any major economy because of this Government’s incompetence and indecision – yet they want struggling families to pay the price.

“The Chancellor must offer certainty to families now and secure our economy by cancelling this cut.”
