Labour pledge to scrap Universal Credit

I have had many constituents come to see me in my office due to being badly affected by Universal Credit. I have seen first-hand how the Conservative Government’s flagship welfare reform programme is causing misery and hardship – leaving claimants in rent arrears or unable to afford their gas or electricity bills and forcing many people to turn to food banks.

A Labour Government will scrap Universal Credit and replace it with a social security system dedicated to dignity, universalism and eradicating poverty.
