Only this government’s distorted austerity agenda could lead to such contradictory policies – Debbie Abrahams

Debbie Abrahams MP, Labour’s
Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary
,
responding to the Government’s announcement of jobcentre closures, said:

“At a
time when the Tories are cutting social security and introducing sanctions for
low-paid workers, it’s reckless at best and perverse at worst for the
Government to close so many Jobcentres.

“Only this government’s distorted
austerity agenda could lead to such contradictory policies.

“This
Tory Government’s decision to close Jobcentres across the country shows they
are not serious about helping people to find decent, secure and well-paid
work’.
