Jonathan Reynolds – 2021 Comments on Cuts to Universal Credit

The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, the Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, on 13 September 2021.

The Secretary of State’s comments this morning were an insult to hard working families facing this cut. One in 14 British workers will lose out, including 660,000 key workers.

Her own government’s analysis revealed this cut would be ‘catastrophic’ leading to more poverty, more debt and an increased risk of homelessness.

Labour will force a vote this week to give every MP the chance to back struggling families and cancel this cut.
