UC uplift: Govt heartless as the cost of living crunch bites

Responding to Simon Clarke ruling out reinstating the Universal Credit uplift this morning, Liberal Democrat Work and Pensions Spokesperson Wendy Chamberlain MP said:

“Rocketing inflation and bills are leaving families facing savage cuts to their incomes this year, but still ministers are refusing to act.

“This heartless approach will condemn thousands more children to growing up in poverty as the cost of living crunch bites.

"It shows just how out of touch this Conservative government is with all those struggling to get by.

"Ministers must announce an emergency budget now and reinstate the £20 uplift to Universal Credit. Every day they fail to act means more families being pushed into debt and struggling to put food on the table."
