Restoration Of Work Allowance Element Of Universal Credit

EDM number 1588 in 2017-19, proposed by Stephen Lloyd on 06/09/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Benefits administration and Benefits policy.

That this House notes that one of the founding principles of universal credit was to make work pay; and therefore calls on the Government to return to this original principle by restoring the work allowance element to its original level, before funding for it was cut by around £3 billion a year in the 2015 Summer Budget.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
