Alan Campbell MP has called on the Government to keep the £20 per week Universal Credit uplify aheadof the Budget.

Alan said “Many constituents have been in touch regarding rumours that the Government is looking to scrap the £20 a week increase in Universal Credit introduced at the start of the pandemic.

I know that the £20 uplift is a real lifeline to many people struggling through the pandemic and who have lost jobs through no fault of their own.

I recently voted in Parliament to keep the uplift and even though the Conservative Government and Conservative MP’s refused to back our call, I have urged to Chancellor to think again.

I believe the cut would be a mistake for families, for the economy and for our ability to effectively tackle and recover from the pandemic.

I have recently raised this with the Chancellor ahead of next week’s Budget and have urged him to make sure the £20 a week is made permanent.”
