Labour responds to a report from the Fabian Society on public attitudes to Universal Credit

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, commenting on a report from the Fabian Society on public attitudes to Universal Credit, said:

“This report confirms that there is strong public support for a social security system in the UK that offers a decent safety net to all. The pandemic has shown Universal Credit to be inadequate, leaving too many people to fall through the gaps.

“These findings will make an important contribution to Labour’s plans for a replacement of Universal Credit which guarantees a proper standard of living and makes work pay.”
