Labour welcomes government U-turn on suspension of minimum income floor

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the Government U-turning on the suspension of the Minimum Income Floor for self-employed workers claiming Universal Credit, said:

“Finally the Government have seen sense and pulled their plans to cut support for the self-employed.

“While we welcome the limited extension until April, the Government must stop these last minute cliff edges which only add to the stress and confusion facing Britain’s self-employed.

“The Chancellor must get a grip and set out a plan for the next six months.”
