Jonathan Reynolds – 2021 Comments on Trussell Report on Universal Credit

The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, the Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, on 4 February 2021.

It is completely wrong that parents are worrying if they can make ends meet and have enough to feed their kids because the Government plan to cut their income by £1,000 a year.

Britain is facing the worst recession of any major economy because of this Government’s incompetence and indecision – yet they want struggling families to pay the price.

The Chancellor must offer certainty to families now and secure our economy by cancelling this cut.
