Nearly 23,000 Milton Keynes families face a “heartless” government Universal Credit cut when the Government withdraws the extra £10 added during COVID next month. Prices have risen, rents have risen, unemployment has risen, and ages have fallen, and yet the Government is cutting Universal Credit that so many working families now rely on.
“£10 can make the difference between getting a hot meal – or paying the rent. When you’re struggling every pound counts” says Lib Dem Councillor Jenni Ferrans. “The Liberal Democrats here and in Government are calling for this £10 to be made permanent. Please write to your MP and ask them to vote for it to stay.”
