Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Disabled People, responding to the Work and Pension Committee’s report into Universal Credit support for disabled people, said:
“The Government must listen to the Committee report that highlights how Universal Credit is failing disabled people.
“Disabled people are suffering as a result of a system that is acting as a vehicle for cuts and has removed vital disability premiums. It is shocking that disabled people are left waiting longer to receive Universal Credit.
“Labour will stop the rollout of Universal Credit and ensure that disabled people get the support they need to lead independent lives and participate fully in society.”
