The Government’s plan to cut Universal Credit for millions of families is morally and economically wrong – Jonathan Reynolds
Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, commenting on a report from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation which warns millions of households will be unable to afford a minimum wage living standard once Universal Credit is cut, said:
“The Government’s plan to cut Universal Credit for millions of families by £1,000 a year is morally and economically wrong.
“Under this Government millions of children are already living in poverty; this cut will only make things harder.
“It is time the Government saw sense, backed struggling families and cancelled their cut to Universal Credit. Labour would replace Universal Credit with a fairer social security system .”
