Jonathan Reynolds – 2021 Comments on Fabian Report and Universal Credit

The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, the Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, on 27 May 2021.

This report confirms that there is strong public support for a social security system in the UK that offers a decent safety net to all. The pandemic has shown Universal Credit to be inadequate, leaving too many people to fall through the gaps.

These findings will make an important contribution to Labour’s plans for a replacement of Universal Credit which guarantees a proper standard of living and makes work pay.
