The Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Work & Pensions repeats his party's stance on Universal Credit following a speech by Sir Vince Cable today. He says: "Instead of leaving vulnerable people in the lurch, we would pause the UC roll-out so we can fix it and properly invest in it".
Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Work & Pensions Stephen Lloyd writes ahead of a #StoptheLoanCharge lobby day in parliament and calls on the Government to amend the 2019 Loan Charge within the Finance Act 2017 so it does not apply retrospectively.
Thousands of nurses, doctors, teachers, public sector contractors and freelancers could be made bankrupt because of the retrospective tax measures contained in the Government’s 2019 Loan Charge, says Lib Dem Work and Pensions Spokesperson Stephen Lloyd MP.
If further urgent changes are not made to the Government’s new benefit, Universal Credit, homelessness will skyrocket and the private rental sector will prove even more resistant to tenants on benefits, says Lib Dem Welfare spokesman Stephen Lloyd MP.
