Jonathan Reynolds – 2021 Comments on Cuts to Universal Credit

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 .
