Labour's Shadow Chancellor, @johnmcdonnellMP, has released a statement regarding the sickening news that single parents and families will lose £200 per month under #UniversalCredit.
His statement is in response to this.

#DWP boss Esther McVey admits millions to lose £200 a month on #UniversalCredit

McVey has been forced to admit single parents and families face a £2400 a year benefit cut next year

Just the day before this came out;

DAMNING study shows Universal Credit to blame for dramatic rise in foodbank use.

#UniversalCredit to blame for a rise in claimants experiencing debt & #mentalhealth issues

Not to mention a 52% increase in #foodbank use

Then of course there was the backlash against Citizens Advice after they signed a £51m deal with the #DWP to assist with #UniversalCredit.

Many people feel betrayed by this move especially with the gagging clause.

The day before I uncovered how group "signing on" sessions are leaving vulnerable claimants without any help.

Agents are too busy with #UniversalCredit claims and don't have time to help those on Jobseekers Allowance - JSA

I had earlier reported that;

Benefit claimants with a #mentalhealth condition were 5 times more likely to be sanctioned than those with other health conditions.

Labour's @MarshadeCordova the Shadow Minister for Disabled People has released a statement after the former chair of The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority -IPSA branded the welfare system as a #HostileEnvironment.

It's just not improving is it @EstherMcVey1?

💥For those calling me "fake news"
1/5

The #DWP are having to use legacy Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) for NEW claimants for a simple reason.

The High Court ruled in June it unfairly discriminated disabled claimants by removing their Severe Disability Premium (SDP)
2/5
This ruling applies to those on EITHER Personal Independence Payment (PIP) with daily living component or Disability Living Allowance (DLA) middle/high care component

If the DWP put new claimants on #UniversalCredit it would be making a two tier system for disabled claimants
3/5
They had a policy consultation until August to plan next move.

This consultation has come to the realisation it cannot put new claimants on UC as it would likely bring court action.

I was contacted by a Citizen's Advice (CAB) Manager concerned this hadn't been announced
