The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, the Shadow Secretary for Work and Pensions, on 14 July 2021.
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 .
